  • hy-gain IPS Dallara

    I am currently in the process of updating my webpage. As part of that update I am applying some "Classic" Indy Car paint schemes to the cars of today.

    Here is a thumbnail of the 1976 hy-gain McLaren design applied to an Infiniti Pro Series Dallara.

    STP all the way!

    Of course I would rather see a 1973 STP #40!

      Any of 'em would be cool. I picked the #3 because '68 was my first Indy.
      And, why isn't it surprising that beyondnascar wants a #40?

        Absolutely the STP car. Gotta love the Granatelli Red!

          Gotta love the Granatelli Red
          Speaking of of Granatelli Red, was Gordy's #20 Flourescent Red or Flourescent Orange??

          I will be recreating this rendering in CMYK and flourescent colors are outside of that color space and connot be matched. So I will attempting to come up with a "reasonable" CMYK match for the color.

          Which of these examples below is a more "reasonable" representation of the 1973 winning cars color?

              One other question,

              What color was the Rear Wing Endplate on the #20 for the 1973 500??

              All model kits on the www show it being in white, but the few photos of the actual car found out there have it being the same color as the rest of the car.

                ...c7 - to answer your question, I would go with photo 2 or the 1974 photo as a more accurate color representation.

                Now to the current topic or poll;

                  hey c7, that is beautiful.

                  i voted for the Rislone (G-Force) but can i make a request for the Penske Sunoco ('72 scheme) Dallara and the Foyt Racing (mid 70s) G-Force?

                  thanks!

                    During practice and quals it was the same color, but on race day it was white, as were the front wings. Sweed had black frong wings on race day. Of all the winners I built, this is one of my most thoroughly researched ones - I guarantee this is what the car looked like on race day(s).

                    Also, regarding the picture comparison - you can't trust those pics - dayglo red is impossible to capture in photos - it frequently shows up more orange than it really is. In all likelihood, the two cars in the pictures above are the exact same color. Variances can be attributed to the film, processing, camera and camera settings. The closest thing on a computer screen to dayglo red is R=255, G =0, B = 0.

                      MichaelP,

                      Thanks for all the info!!! That was my first 500 and I was only 7, so most of my memories of that race are the rain and the crashes(unfortunately).

                      Thanks especially for the RGB formula, when I convert it to CMYK I'm sure it will look even further off. But as you stated dayglo colors just can't be reproduced in photography or printing.

                        C7 - I missed the part about you reproducing in CMYK. I have a pantone process combination book and I held it up to my 73 Eagle - the Best match was c=0, m=100, y=70, k=0 - which really doesn't seem to make sense, since it would be toward the magenta side of red, but in my lighting conditions here at home (I'm using GE reveal 40 - natural color bulbs) the combination above was best, although y=80, 90 and 100 were also very close. The important thing is to keep the C & K out of it.

                          MichaelP,

                          Thanks for the CMYK formula, that really helps me when considering you are comparing it to your 73 Eagle.

                          The problem with working in CMYK for a color like this is even when you use Mag and Yelo Only, the Mag still has a "dirty cyan" component.

                          I prefer CMYK for consistency pruposes and fewer "surprises" when printing out. Then for Web stuff I convert the CMYK to RGB and the color shift issue is eliminated. But try starting in RGB then converting to CMYK for output, and all of those ultra-bright colors get dirty.

                          I am going to use 96m, 76y to lighten & shift the color slightly.

                          Thanks again!!

                              slinger,

                              Sorry for talking "shop" on the board. MichaelP and I probably should have been discussing these issues in PM's rather than in the main thread.
