Color changing paints can also be made by adding halochrome compounds or other organic pigments. One patent cites use of these indicators for wall coating applications for light colored paints.
Greg Walters uses shiny helmet look for racing helmet
Oregon’s awesome Rose Bowl helmet design continues to inspire the sporting world. First we got a glimpse of how Syracuse may be looking to take a page from the reflective paint job demonstrated by Oregon for a game this season. Now dirt race driver Greg Walters is planning on using a Oregon-style race helmet the next time he drives his 97 car.
According to Hydro Graphics Inc., “Greg was looking to dress up his brain bucket so “Hollywood” could shine bright! Now go take the # 97 to the front!”
A couple more images after the jump…
Well Greg, you certainly have the style of a champion. But I would love to see a car painted with a similar job. Of course, not knowing much about dirt racing, I imagine that shiny reflective paint job would get scuffed up in a hurry on the track. Still, a before and after shot would be pretty neat, would it not?
Of course, this is not the first time the worlds of college football and auto racing have clashed, nor will it be the last. NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer recently honored the BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide with his car’s paint job for a race at Talladega. He even honored Paul “Bear” Bryant with his helmet’s design.
What will be next racing fans?
