high-gloss paint is very difficult because of the reflections you see this by Pic 1+2

I don't find the reflections to bad, they almost add to the effect of showing how good the paint on that bus is as it looks dead flat and doesn't ripple.

Out of interest where are you when you sweep the car? between the camera and the car or in one place turning the light? Just interested as to how you don't cause softness, end up with a blur of you moving through shot or just plain get caught lit up by any spill?

the light scraper is built inside U-channel aluminum, so the light spills over a relatively narrow angle and blocks him from getting lit up.
