    What it be heat to the spot?

    Discussion started by IRON HEAD - Apr 20, 2004

    Would it be heat to the spot?

    I was wondering if it would be a heat to the spot if you put tape over the limit #'s and leave the tape on with a corner peeled off so the workers can take it off. Reason why i ask if it's a heat to the spot is because they might know some one is painting there if the tape is slightly peeled off in a corner. It's nice for the flik too... even though i also like flix with the number's showing... anyhow thanx in advance

    Just paint around the numbers. You can paint real close to the numbers, so that from a distance you barely notice anything's missing from the piece.
    Why would you leave the tape on with a corner upturned when you could...
    ...peel off the tape?

    ...whatever...I always tape the numbers...don't give them a reason for stamping yer shit...just caught a great black HS that I did a while back that got destroyed, all because i went over the numbers...i will even tape an old school moniker...pitty the fool that goes over a herby or a joe...when you don't have tape why not take move over a bit and take part of the door and not the numbers...karma to the yard

    i guess i try to go around the numbers as much as possible but sometimes it's unavoidable..like when there's some toy scribble over them already taking up a perfectly good panel...

    i think the shit's gonna end up getting stamped no matter what..it's just the luck of it..same with the black box..i know you're not supposed to paint it but i caught a couple pieces still intact from 96 -97 recently going over the box...

    but yeah..i think if they realize it's fresh paint..and tape over the numbers that might bring some heat to the spot...peel it off after you catch your flicks and don't sweat it...

    basically!
    ive seen people do painstaking work to paint around the numbers and they still got stomped. so if you cant paint between the #'s and the door, just clip them shits and get your fliks.

    Re: Would it be heat to the spot?

    You should just peel the tape off yourslef afterwards. Some workers might and probablly hate graffiti all around and this will just make them choked knowing that painting is going on in their yard.
