why do they ...greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
The people on the show always paint there machines but they never use that time to upgrade or check the machines. Why?

I would say they probably have a few hours in the morning for checking their machine, getting it "safe" (quick idea, leave doing the attachments for the safe mechanisms to the end if one is pressed for time, I would guess, since then they will have to give you time in the morning to attach those anyway) and other things. It's a lot easier to paint a vehicle while its loaded on a truck, than it is to test a vehicle in the same position. It also adds flare to the competition.
