    Be more picky about what you paint on freights! Since they never get buffed and security is getting tighter and tighter, my advice is that you don't paint the stell until you get really good. Eventually there isn't gunna be that many blank freights and the security will have killed the scene. So get good and then be picky about what you put on that steel.!

    buff this....

    i disagree.
    maybe if you go over the markings, but some companys dont bother to buff. i think ODS-1 is reffering to GVS, LNAC, WSOR, MET, etc... flat cars. i rarely see them buff, and sometimes the dont bother to restencil the LD LMT/LD WT. there is already way to much garbage on these cars. and chances are, since they dont buffed, wack piecese well be gone over. and as for GVS flats, i see alot of dope, older pieces runied due to buffs, restenciling, and re-weld spots/buffs. pretty soon these will have to go also. so like ODS-1 said, when you paint, make sure you come off nice. if not, stay out the yard.

    and as far as new fr8s go, companys do not have time or money to take cars out of service to buff. i think pieces will run for a while on those new TBOXs, as long as you stay off the markings.

    What's it matter? We're all going to forever have to paint over shit. Over half the time I paint I'm covering someone. I'm either going to become a god or the biggest asshole in the world for that. My only rules are 1.) Do I know who they are? and if no then I go to 2a.) Is it worth leaving there or 2b.) can I burn it? I agree though...if you suck stay off.

    what odds says doesnt make any sense, i never heard of a writer or a crew going to the yard to bomb trains with tags and throwups, doesnt everyone try and do nice ish..
    freights usually only get buffed if you go over the numbers

    do you ever even watch trains?? if so do you see tags and throwups?? how do you think they got there?? i go out all the time solely to streak, do paint tags, hollows, or throwups....the freight game is about everything as a whole...nothing goes unnoticed to the motherfuckers who really give a damn.

    from where i bench freights do get buffed plenty. graff to buff ratio is still pretty high though. whats hightr is the graff to clean car ratio. freights will probably never be covered with graff. and besides, me personally i like seeing tags and thro-ups on freights. that kind of shit makes the world go round. not to sound like the asshole that i am but crisp clean colorful pieces would be pretty boring if thats all there was. variety is the spice of life dun.

    And I just don't think it'd be worth it to get your head smashed in by some rambo redneck bull for soing some shit throwup or tag.

    you probably live close or right by a yard...those are the cats that usually take more pride in doing various things other then pieces

    i was talking about people who live at least a good 50 miles away from one who just go to get a few pieces and thats all

    I never get geeked on someone's tag...not even someone I know. I don't get much more geeked on bombs either. The only would be if it was someone who bombs hardcore and I've never been the city to see it done. Then it might be cool. However, hardcore bombers don't usually bomb trains. Blah for me. Blah for you.
