Lotus 97T
« on: May 29, 2016, 10:56:05 am »
Latest tribute to Senna. Connie is now a "replica" of the Lotus 97T. The car/team that gave Senna his first F1 victory at the Portuguese Grand Prix in 1985.
I still remember watching that race and I am dating myself here. :)

I bet the air deflectors might look good in gold.

Thanks guys. Good to see some F1 fans in here.

I agree Tim. Still looking for the right way to do it. Stickers sometimes are a pain to install. Damn air bubbles. :(
It took me a long time to find a company that would take a custom order. Of course it's from England, bunch of F1 fanatics there.

While that might look good on a 2010 and up. It looks Fantastic on the 09 body style.

I enjoyed seeing the work in progress and talking a little F1 with you at River Ratz. The completed job looks fantastic.

Are you going to put the "John Player" and "Renault" graphics on the front of your yellow Shoei now?  :)

Thank you Ed. Very nice talking to you at River Ratz as well.
Hope to see you at the Nationals. :motonoises:

I have much bigger plans for the helmet.  >:D

This is an older x-11 helmet I had it custom painted (along with my wife's helmet).
The guy who painted is no longer working, so I am trying to find someone with good skills to paint the Neotec now.
Always a work in progress.  :great:
