So...I'm shooting an Aston Martin Vanquish convertible next weekend, is it worth bringing the rig? I use a 5m Rig Pro, plus a D800 so it's a fairly heavy setup and a bit concerned about using the paintwork.

I don't understand the concern at all. I can show you every kind of car you can name rigged with Rig-Pro equipment with no issues at all.

- Make sure the areas where you plan to install the cups is waxed
- Make sure to get at least a 9 ft spread
- Select the right road (super smooth, small gradient)
- Bring at least 1 assistant
- If you're not using Woods cups, don't even attempt it

Easy as pie.

My concern is that the car belongs to the director of the biggest law firm in the state, and I don't have public liability insurance if things go wrong. :oops:

Well that and the last car I used the paint on left slight imprints in the paintwork. And while I'm sure they can be buffed out, the owner was still somewhat nervous after seeing them. (I am using your woods cups :-) )

Would that waiver say.."please don't sue my if I F-up your paint"? :-)
Paint is a funny thing. People can see all sorts of things if they want to.

Did you wax the area before you installed the cups? If so, something is wrong with your wax. The ring will wipe right off if there is wax underneath, my customers have collectively done it thousands of times.

If you are unsure, just don't rig the car, no big deal.

The car had been waxed but not recently, that could be the reason.

I do know that she's getting the car detailed the morning of the shoot, so hopefully that will be enough. I'll talk to her honestly about the process, show her past work using the technique, and let it be her call.

This is what I use, and I only use it if the customer insists against my better judgement.

Never leave the waxing up to the customer, it's unprofessional. Control every last thing you can, and deny the shoot if anything doesn't follow that paradigm.

Why would anybody sign anything that says "no mater what if something goes wrong you are screwed" Or..
If I drag a metal pole across the hood of your 930 turbo its ok I am not at fault..even if I have no idea what I am doing..tough Or..
If this giant suction cup pulls the custom paint completely off the top..its ok I am in the clear.

I guess my point is the potential customer has no idea if any of us know what we are doing. Nice pictures don't equate to knowledge of strapping equipment and a large metal pole to the top of a car.

One of the Ferrari club members here had his new 0.0 mile Ferrari transported to Daytona international and unloaded ON the track. He wanted the first inch of travel to be on a race track..he would have killed to have rig shots on the banking..but sign something like that :oops:
