The Latifi family is becoming one of Censports best clients and I owe thanks to their motorsports manager David Tennyson for bringing them to Censport. Latifi has large goals and I have no doubt he will make them come true. His first step is to dive into international motorsports competing in Europe in the F3 Championship. Nick is already an accomplished kart racer but is stepping it up into formula cars. Here are two of our most recent creations for Nick, I designed the livery of his F3 car and painted his Bell HP3 to match the car design. Go get em’ Nicky!
The first helmet we did for Jeff was a GP-6RC and we had that helmet all gloss to show off the pretty carbon weave. This helmet is a GP-6 PED which comes in white so since we didn’t have carbon to show off we painted those areas black. The whole helmet is bathed in rubber feeling matte clear and looks stunning. I also reversed the shading from his other helmet to make them look different, so the areas that are white fades on the other helmet are red on this helmet and vice versa.
For years I went from one chroming source to another only to be let down time after time with poor quality. Since quality is number one on my list my biggest pet peeve was to put a perfect paint job on a terrible chrome job. So I took a huge step and invested in Spectra Chrome so I could do chrome in house and make sure the chrome was as perfect as possible. We are even doing chrome for some of America’s top painters, as they know quality is what they will get from Censport. It took a couple months of trial and error and redoing things until they came out perfect but we have the system nailed and are producing some very good results. Take a look at some of these pictures of helmets right after they have been chromed and then the final out come once a design is painted on.
