What about "cling film" between the cups and the hood?
Please don't laugh it might be a way to try....

Sounds like it could work. But it might make the cup lift. I might try it, it's worth a shot

I am sorry for you, I hope you can get them out. That's the reason why I only mount my cups on windows. I am way to afraid to leave marks on the panels of Ferrari's or other exotics.

I can't seem to get the angles I like when the rig is mounted to the glass. We did do a shot from the glass, but it just isn't as stellar.

Now...back to the drawing board. Do rings only occur on black paint, or do all paint jobs get damaged, but you don't see the damage because of the color?

Is it a clear-coat issue? Is it a new paint issue? Reading through the thread, the issue seems to be hit-or-miss.

Sounds as if it's the weight of the pole on the nearer forcing the cup down on the paint which has caused this. I've left a mark on a car with paintshield before and with polishing it came out :)

I noticed a ring on the roof of my car while drying my car after a wash yesterday. I went over it with a damp micro fiber and it came off.

I'll let you'all know how the professional buffing goes. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Meanwhile, this is a shot of the rig.

:D

Could you please tell me what that mount is you have on the camera at the end of the rig? I'm currently using a magic arm with the lever tighten but it's hard to set up the shot easily, would be nice to lock in place and reposition with that mount!

Do you guyz attempt rigging on custom painted cars? im a bit worried that the suction could rip the paint right off. Factory paint has been holding very well and the the rings left behind come off pretty ez.

Any insight on custom paint rigging would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

It's just the same. As long as you don't rig up a fresh paintjob when it's still soft then you should be fine.

Jel su to HR rege kaj vidim?? :cool:

Looks great! The first on is a bit blurry on the back of the car, and i would go on more contrast on the second. But not bad.

Dobro vidiš :eek:

This is my first ever rig shot, excited about doing more shots like this!!

Rig is 4x4ft sections with a guide wire, 2x Avenger F1000's, 3x Super clamps and a magic arm. Used the ND110 and also blended a couple of flash frames as
the side was pretty deep in shadow.
