I have rigged 20+ cars on the paint, and my own very fragile Lotus many times, and have never had an issue. You have to be smart about where you put the cups, and make sure to distance them from each other as far as you can. I also never rig on just one panel (hood, trunk, top, etc.), I've seen guys do this, but I don't, and won't. Distribution is the key IMO.

Go easy, my very first rigged shoot. My wife rented the Lotus for my 30th bday (awesome right?!) Andrew, take it easy man - you are the king!

I was gracefully given the cups and magic arm from a local guy, and actually used concrete bull float poles as my poles. Reason because they broke down into 6' sections and clipped together. They really flexed but all together, I think it worked well. I have plenty of stills that I will put up in the Transportation section in a few days/weeks. Hope this qualifies as a good job for my first time!

well done! my favorite is the 2nd to last one (and you can't see the lack of driver from there :p)

i've considered the concrete pole solution as well, but all the ones I looked at local to me were $200+ just for the pole set.

Thanks man! I appreciate it. Below are just quick searches for handles - threaded and clipped. I used the clipped but the threaded are MUCH thicker in diameter and more than likely sturdier.

It's official, I am now stoked! Thanks man! I studied your work hard before I got the Lotus. Your work is just plain ridiculous. I will post up my stills later and hopefully you think they are good too!
