Chris, Nancy suggests that you do the car in chartreuse and magenta with a background of cocoa.

Yes, she's had a glass of wine...maybe two.

Now she's telling me that the colors are like the Coneheads on the Old Saturday Night Live shows.  Ah, what a memory she's got.  I spelled that correctly -- Memory.


And after I posted this in the first iteration -- she tells me that no, she didn't mean the Coneheads.  Let's just drop it for now, okay?

I think the flames are going the right direction - I mean, that's the end that the flames usually come out of an X1/9, right? grin

Looks weird.  A drag racer friend of mine, Eddie Potter, said that the way to get famous in racing was to win all the time, which is difficult, or look or do something so different that everyone remembers you.  You may have found it.   cheers

Blue and Green are too close together to look "right".
Green and Red, or Blue and Orange, would be better.


Flames also need to be outlined in a contrasting color.

I would say flip the numbers around too if you are going to go with bassakwards flames. Then glue a matching Afro wig to your helmet.

Otherwise, I would spare my car and myself the anguish and go with a solid green and maybe some off-green flames (Pointing the right direction, of course). Silver flames would be cool too. The colors you have clash a bit. This link may help you with finding the root cause of the issue:

Haha, you asked! Bitchen' car otherwise. If you lived near me, I would airbrush you something cool.

BB, I'll ask the question for Chris (JH):  Where in Oregoon are you?  He's in that state, too, you know.

And speaking of Oregon -- are you planning on attending Freud's Bonneville Reunion in Portland on the 21st of February?  Do consider it -- it's a fine way to meet new folks and re-furbish old acquaintances.

That black patch was a hole! (the car in the "flame" pic is on the hook and we have the cover off to charge the batts between runs)

(the hole missing is not exactly what I was talkin' about)  grin
