(off topic) Check out my Ayrton Senna Mclaren Bedroom Paintjob

Post by samsepi0l »

Ever since I have been young the first time I saw the Marlboro Mclaren color scheme I have loved it. Everyone thinks that the Mclarens were "red and white" but in reality you may or may not know that the Mclarens where actually not red- they were fluorescent orange. This was done because back in the day, the TV cameras did not do a good job of picking up red- and they wanted something that would look bright red on TV.

I found this exact paint, which is made by "dayglo" corporation. It is $150 per US gallon! I bought some and painted my bedroom in a McLaren Ayrton Senna scheme.

Well, congrats for that! Seems quite cool.
The mere fact that you can distinguish red and fluorescent orange means you have good knowledge about paints and painting, I wouldn't reach that level :lol: I knew that the Brazilian helmet painter with whom Senna worked instructed him to carry a fluorescent yellow for the same reasons, to be seen on TV, though.

That's really cool! I would prefer some softer colors in my bedroom but I give you 10 points out of 10 for the idea and execution.
No girlfriend or is this her Christmas present? 😄
Mine would probably kill me if I did this...
