* * cars inside autos catching the mist * *

Recommended Posts

Ok, so a computerless partner of mine asks me to come on here and ask anyone who might know something on the issue...

 

As far as painting holy rollers, does anyone know specific incidents of writers getting knabbed for getting paint misted on the cars inside? Or does anyone know of workers/car dealers that attempt to track that back to where it happened or anything like that?

 

(An overflow has been created and this is starting to get to us.)

 

Thanks in advance,

 

ZackAttackski

...Don't paint autos with cars inside unless you want to draw heat...

...this has been covered many times before...do search before you ask a question...

calling cars "whips" is a terrible thing too...but seriously, i would try to avoid it at all costs, sometimes there is nothing else to paint though i guess. i had a friend that worked at a MUA lot where they unloaded the autoracks, and he said those big white sheets of plastic you see stuck to the side of new cars help a little bit, what pisses manufactuars off the most is when the paint gets on alloy rims. i dont know if its harder to clean off or what (maybe they have to be replaced), but he said that seems to be what gets people all worked up.

thanks for the input guys... i'm hoping what we did wont draw heat but if it does its a lesson learned. we never get to paint autoracks where i live and when we do they ahve mr engine attached but them shits always get caught for sure so we get hyped on em.. anyways, our sewing circle agreed to stay off em if opportunity arizes again but hopefully they'll be back with nothing on the insides :)

 

thanks again!

A family member bought an suv, I forget what type. But anyways when she got it there was a goldish colour all over it. She took it back to the place she bought it and apparently it was rail dust or something along those lines and it was from the rust and then wheels rubbing or something like that.

If paint got through the holes than half of the cars manufactrured would have paint on them.

They dont keep the cars right next to the side, then they would get dented. You would probably goet paint on them if you used one of those nozzle detail caps and held it in the hole.

So in this case, not likely.

MYTH BUSTED.

as you can see there are mixed feelings about the issue, only you can determine weather its ok or not, the spot as alot to do with it, ive painted them with and without and not had heat, but to each is his own

I don't know, some of those larger SUV's come close to the edges. Look at the inside of an open autorack next time, the tire rails are mad close to the edge of the car. Isn't the name of this game still "play it safe/careful" or am I becoming a philosophical dinosaur already? I realize common sense died around the same time black and white television did but come on...

 

 

 

......more bad advice from the most paranoid writer ever.

haha. most new cars have the white protection plastic on them, and most cars get detailed before getting sold. i have gotten paint on my car before, and though its a hassle, it comes off with a buffer and some elbow grease. ive done it before, i'll do it again. usually the only time i can hit them they are loaded, but if you have the option hit the empties i guess.

yeah like people said above, alot of times the cars have white film on them while shipping. one of the main spots my crew used to paint was constantly stocked with loaded autoracks. i've painted quite a few loaded ones. actually alot more than i'd like to admit. i think it would be hard for them to figure out what exact spot it was done in unless you write what city you painted the car in... which is actually pretty common. a good friend of mine knew someone that worked at a yard which unloads the cars and said that he knew for a fact certains trains were done in the train yard near by and never saw any paint on the cars. but i guess all in all, if you can paint an empty autorack do it. or go somewhere else to paint. im sure getting caught painting a loaded auto rack would sport a heftier fine as well. im sure we have all done some lame brain shit before. i know of a few crews who wont paint loaded holy rollers period.

do like the west coast guys and use roll paint on holyrollers.

 

i think its stupid to even consider painting loaded auto racks, even if its on an ambush, but then again very few people get as methodical about spot preservation as i am.

ive been told by a friend who works at a dealership that after gettin unloaded the cars are normally detailed due to damage done by weather, and that nasty rail dust... a la a little overspray wont matter after that...
