    I was sitting back wondering, for those of you that have done wholecars, roughly how long have they taken to finish? And how many people you had painting, and were they bucket or spray paint? Thanks.....

    hrrmm.. i've done a mix of spray and bucket.

    personally i think it's silly to use just spray on a wholecar for many reasons. a $2 bucket of oops paint is gonna go miles farther than a heap of rustos. that and the fact that you can cover much more area much faster....

    There is no limit. If you hav a sweet spot to camp out .. A spot where you know the schedule of fr8's to move in and out .Go ahead and rock the whole car with spray , but if time is limited and you fiend to rock the whole car .. have ya roller ready .But usually smashin whole cars burns out the whole lay up . You fuk around and get bagged on the next session .

    word to 'oops'paint...go to home depot, pick up a gallon of miss-tints for a mere $2 and you can probably cover the car top to bottom...my first wholecar took 7 hours with a lunch break... i thought my arms were gonna fall off. oh and be prepared to fall off the ladder a few times.

    Just did one last night as a matter of fact! A $3.00 bucket of hot ass orange almost neon but more pastel like with a American Accents "Heritage Red" outline, with an extension stick to roll it on for the wholecar, while using your ladder take rusto fat caps to cut the outline out (my preference) , put the drop shadow on , and while your at it take $0.88 walmart black and buff the background around your outline, then take a bright ass spray for halo around your drop, and use the roller to clean up your fills. Then design and cut and fade and all that other stuff until your hearts content. I'm sure this isn't everyones favorite technique but it sure as hell is mine. Oh and another thing.... someone said bring a friend and that is a damn good idea! Both do whole cars...... and help each other out one at a time. Bring plenty of roller covers so that two guys can use the same color at the same time.
    I have used this technique a couple of times and would recommend it to anyone wanting to do whole cars and big shit......Even end to ends if you've got a good spot......Use spray for boxcars and roll for hoppers and cabooses.......

    That's all folks!!!
