I hope they made it to the precinct only after being sent to the hospital.

It's not worth getting jammed up over some vandal. Save the Bronx party hats for something better.

No one dare messes with my R143s! Those and the R142As are the only NTTs I like and I will not tolerate them being tagged at all!

 

Okay, I'm done :)

I would have like to have seen that car all tagged up then seen how they clean it. The chemicals they use to clean the train must be something bad.

Heaven forbid they tag up a fresh new R160.That seem inevitable.

 

It's been done I'm sure.

I know, I know, just more of my how-the-NYPD-should-be.

I'm seriously not surprised especially if they are tagged up in the interiors. Look at the R142/A walls, they are made with the same materials as white boards and any type of permanent marker or spray can ruin their texture if done repetitively. The R143 and R160 walls on the other hand, are made with wall paper-like materials and can easily be scratched off with the touch of a switchblade. God knows why the NTTs didn't keep the R62/A and R68/A stainless steel interiors, but they are no doubt the best even though they had minor problems with buffing scratchitti.

It's happened, on the exterior. When the paint was being washed off, there were still traces of it on the car body.

The scratchitti on the stainless steel interiors are impossible to get rid of. The only way they can come off is if the entire structure is replaced.

 

The NTT walls are made of something plastic that is supposed to withstand graffiti and scratchitti in my view of things. I find it almost impossible that an R142 has not been vandalized before, but whenever you enter in one, there always seem to be no sign of paint vandalism. I've been on one R142 where someone tagged up the wall right next to the full width A car. I caught the same car a couple of weeks later and no trace of it was found.

To me, the R142/A walls are white versions of the 60 ft SMEE walls.

Can't the scratches in the stainless steel be buffed out or filled in? I'm just wondering. And as for the NTT walls, they have suffered scratchitti. Nothing is scratch-resistant, not plastic, not metal, not even glass. That's why the glass windows have film to protect it, but that's all.
