Did you only put the cups on the glass? Is it a full wrap? Looks awesome though, with the Green Pop!!

Thanks man. Yep, suctions cups were on the glass. These two cars from Addipted were both plastidipped all the way through. And the Evo had stickers across the top of the front and rear windshield. No problem though :). I had to mount the suction cup about 8 inches from the top of the front windshield. This car glows in the dark too :)

Today I bought a 10 stop b+w ND filter, I never bothered to look what most of you guys use for an ND filter. Is a 10 stop too much? If so I can always find another use for it

I'm running Hoya Pro 1 Digital 4 and 6 stop ND filters and CPL. I think the CPL by itself, CPL + 4ND, and CPL +6ND are a good range from full sun to sunset.

Here's my first go at it. I couldn't get the height I needed to go with 20ft of boom so I just used 15ft at 24mm. Any recommendations on some form of height extender?

Looks good though!! Are you talking about more height from the cups? Do you have woods?

Maybe look at these: http://www.filmtools.c​om/5sp6low3feth.html (external link)

The taller you go, the more dangerous it is, exponentially. A 12" cup extension is super dangerous, which is why I don't sell such a thing.

Yeah i tried using an extra Swivel Pin on another Swivel Pin for more height and took it immediately off..

Quick shot I did of a Halloween Hertz. Didn't have a lot of time, took about 20 minutes. The upload softens the image.

Okay, so I have two concerns that I'd like to bounce off a few of you here.

First one is safely mounting/unmounting suction cups to the paint.

My first rig I decided that I didn't want to mess with any paint on my first try so I mounted to glass. Suction cups mounted just fine, but getting them unsealed was a huge issue and I wouldn't want to wrestle with this on paint. Any tips and tricks you guys have to put on/remove cups safely?

Secondly, I went out and bought three avenger Suction cups, (Amazing deal, don't hate) 2 F1000, and one F1100.Although leaving marks on my glass (wiped off no problem) Two out of the three worked great, one failed right out of the box.

I am curious to know If there are any woods dealers in Canada and what exactly do I need in addition to the cups themselves?

Thanks!

The Avenger cups can be a pain.. The woods are way easier to remove, has two tabs to release it and its made with a softer rubber..

To make woods work you would need

Spud for Swivel Pin http://www.filmtools.c​om/58babspudw381.html (external link)
Long Spud for Swivel Pin http://www.filmtools.c​om/5sp6low3feth.html (external link)

Swivel Pin http://www.amazon.com …linkCode=as2&ta​g=p2069-20 (external link)

I dont know anything about Canada dealers but you could always get the cup setups from Andrew pretty sure he ships anywhere..

Andrew knows I'd give him the business but the shipping duty kills me between borders. I was able to get 3 avengers for under 160 bucks Canadian, it would have cost me about 300 for the same if I shipped from over the border. It would be cool to find a woods dealer in Canada. :)

What do you usually do for paint prep and suction cup removal regardless? I took windex with me and cleaned my glass before application. What do you do with paint?

160 for 3 cups Nice, i think i spent around 100 USD on one wood cup setup..

When i first started i didn't think about paint prep lol, would wash my car and i saw rings from the cups..

Now i start with a clean car and make sure the car has a nice coat of wax on it, when i remove the cups i wipe off with a detailing microfiber towel, If you forget, should just take a quick re-wax, i would use a real carnuba wax not any of that quick detail crap, and the rings went away for me.. I use a company called "chemical guys" for all my wax and car wash stuff..
