Not only a change of scenery but a big change of subject.
Thanks God some one finally added a SUV or I had to go through the trouble myself.
All pictures here are fantastic but again all are two door typical cars. This one makes it all the way for me in a totally different terrain.

This is a fantastic shot! It must have been a pain to get a non bouncy shot i think?

Thanks guys!

Killer shot, I really hope to get to meet up with you to if not test out and ask a few questions about the setup. Maybe tag along for a shoot and help if I can.

what are people doing for under car magnets?


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

I first tried using magnets that hold the ladder inside a wind turbine. They're crazy strong but the rubber casing gave them too much play. Now I use 250# retrieval magnets. You can get them at places like Harbor Freight.

How do you get them off of the car?

It is 250 pound pull at a 90 degree angle.... straight off the surface. But if you roll them on one side they come off pretty easily.

I am there too. I have a loose design in my head using brackets and clamps, but would like to see one with the magnets as well...

These are the only shots of my rig that I have. I'm going to do a full writeup (blog) the next chance I get to use it.

I use 2 magnets with 2 simple brackets. There are holes drilled every ~6 on the pole under the vehicle

First, I tried just using this bracketry to hold the angled arm but there was too much bounce due to the length of the angled arm. Now I also use a long cable attached to T-bolt clamps

My first ever attempt after waiting for 2,5 months for the magic arm to arrive.. I need to work on the boom, will add an extra cable for horizontal stabilization and try again.

I'll document the rig in another post.
