Another one from me

This was **** scary. OK, it was taken at 5 in the morning, on the outskirts of my town! But, I was alone, and had to drive the car, round a dead corner hoping no cars came the other way! Ran up the hill on the right, checked there were no cars, and ran down, jumped in the car and drove! I drove at up to 30km/h! The rig pro was working good!
Any comments on how I could improve? :)

Will either of these two be as good as the woods suction cups mentioned above?

i Usually find rigging with the owner of the vehicle is enough. Next time drag a friend. Much safer in pairs anyway. Not sure how crime is but over here its hard to be by yourself since someone can mug you.

I can't believe all you solo riggers. I want to shoot more rigged vehicles bad but have been limited by finding another person to help. That's just the way it is though. Rigging alone is way too risky!

Rigging alone is stupid, sorry guys. All processes need a system of checks and balances, and you're just inviting disaster if you try to circumvent that fact.

the only time I've rigged solo was the week I got my rig, rigging my own truck on my own property. Every other time I have had at least the car's owner there to help.

I am about to rig an R8, does anyone have any recommendations as to where to NOT put the cups?

The R8 is pretty robust, many have rigged them, just put the cups by a seam and you'll be fine.

I try my best to stick to glass only if possible as the cups do leave marks on paint that need be buffed or polished to remove. If you are shooting a car over a certain value, I'd let the owner know in advance this is the case. Guys who spend $100K+ on a car can be pretty anal when it comes to taking care of them.
