Help with a photo shoot

I previously did a photo shoot with a model and my 2012 Challenger SRT8 with her standing next to the car and standing through the open window, and will be doing a second shoot later this week.

Is it safe to take pictures with her laying or sitting on the hood of the car?

She doesn't weigh much, I'm just wondering if these cars may be fragile in certain spots. One of these days when time permits I'll hopefully post some of the photos.

I wouldn't.. I'd swear I can see the hood kinda flop when I hit bumps, even without a 90 lb model laying on it.

Don't have her sit on he car at all. I put nothing down on the car let alone a person. Do a as you wish, it's your car.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

These calls will DENT no matter where she sits.. Don't have her sit anywhere on the car, at all! If you want, have her sit in the drivers seat.. She can do all sorts of poses there without denting anything. It's one thing to "lean" on the car, that, if done carefully would be ok. But even sitting a light weight model on it... bad idea! Just have her put her hands on the nose, legs spread.. that's always a classy shot!
