Changed all my Red "1"s to Blue

Changed all my Red "1"s to Blue. Just looks right to me on a BRM car. Engine cover is being done and I have an emblem already done for that. Then the strut brace goes to the powder coater for a similar treatment. Emblems cost me an hour of my time and $3 worth of automotive grade ebay vinyl.

First my picture frame:


Then my extra emblem for my engine cover:


Now all the emblems on the car, front, rear, hood:

What about the red stitching? j/k - I think it's a cool idea and gives it a unique look.

Thanks guys. Not going any further, or so I think, after the engine cover and strut brace.

Did my brakes in blue, currently trying to paint my ones intense blue to match my calipers. What blue is that, and where did you get it?

That is what I was thinking and the dash. If it is one of the newer ones then it is clear coated I believe. The early models like mine are stickers. It does look good though.

Great to see someone else likes the blue! Mine were painted by Tom Henry. He didn't do the calipers and I just noticed the sill plates are also red ones. I talked to him about the headrests and red stitching. Way to hard to do, so we left them red.

Also did the blue lighting package...

JMCbeth love that car. Very well done! Here's the vinyl I used. Very easy, but tedious. Cut and recut until it fits perfect.

Got the, one red and one blue, ZL1 polo shirts for my husband when we first got the car. The Blue Polo Shirt would go perfectly with your BRM even though the one is in red. Also got him (husband) the red and the black ZL1 jackets. Chevymall.com.
