    i dont care if a thread like this has been started already im new to this shit.

    sometimes i hate painting the bar or super type ridgey shit. but on the good side when you paint the bar your shit will never get stamped.

    NOW on the other hand i feel like if you gonna take the bar then go right over it, not above it day time or not. above the bar is weak girly shit.

    the only thing i'll say about this is that those people out there who paint the right panel with the bar, yet they don't actually paint the bar (ie: they paint up to the bar, skip it and then continue their piece underneath the bar) need to be shot...that shit looks fucking half-ass, you might as well just do a fucking floater rather than giving up because its too much effort to paint the bar and match up those lines....blah blah blah.

    yea you just made up that part about the piece not getting stamped. And the bar is wack, but i wont hesitate to catch wreck on it. I actually dont prefer flat cars, because too many of them are ugly colors and designs. Im not feelin the brown CRAIl flats and CN flats, they llook to plain. BUt on flats by CSX, BAR, Solid Gold, and whatever else has a funky fresh desing im loving it. I like the IC Flats too. Oh yea, but the bar, the bar is wack. word.

    i watch a lot of trains and i see a lot of barphobia. painting on the bar is bass ackward. 3 reasons: if the door is open 2 or 3 times the paint is going to get scraped off anyway. when the paint on the bar is put into the piece it only looks decent in a straight on flick, and motherfuck a flik, fliks are for pussies. third its just a waste of paint, paint you could be tagging or busting thro ups with. the cure for barphobia is to just paint around that shit. once you master that you'll fght for the bar side.
    now you wanna be hardcore, paint over the numbers just because.

    Back when I used to care about this topic, I would have quoted Aserine. Now I'm like whatever. I have seen bar pieces where people painted it, dodged it but painted behind it to the bottom, and dodged it by floating, and in all three categories there were some dope and some wack-looking. When I do the bar side I go to the bottom and on the bar, and fuck it if it doesn't line up from an angle. If I can't get the good panel I often choose a door over the bar, and I paint the below-the-bar section of the door area. I only float when it's a loading dock or other high-standing vantage point, and then I make sure the style is one that floats OK, usually by adding drips, icicles or stalactites or a suitable cloud.
    But like I said I don't care about this anymore, so do whatever feels good.
