I mean, for coverin' up the old bod? I'm up early, went and poked around the barn for a while
after the mutt went back to sleep. And I came back in a while ago for a cup of fresh, hot, delicious,
steaming cup of coffee, and thought I'd check in to see what the boys on the forum were up to last night.
I'm thinkin' how slow the forum has been lately, so I thought I'd throw somethin' out to see if anyone is awake.
I've been picking up gloves that I though might look stylish with a Cyclekart, and I've got
the goggles and a leather helmet, leftovers from my open pit flying days, so I've got those covered.
I see a lot of the guys wearing coveralls, which look kind of period correct for 20's since suits and
ties were what you went motoring in back in the day.
Looking online for coveralls is like looking for tea at the super market,,,so dang many choices
it boggles the mind. .
So what brand, style, are ya'll buying for your cover ups and who ya buying them from?
Now the Fez...... well....that really doesn't turn me on, but I would, like to get a nice comfy
pair of coveralls......just in case I do happen to make it to a Cyclekart meet.

I got a grey shirt and pants for Mark's, not a big fan of coveralls.



S'all for now!

Coveralls all the way!
They lend all the entry/exit/servicing activity a degree of dignity, if you know what I mean.
They just look more legit, and get a surprising number of compliments. I only spent about $20
on Ebay reasoning they'd get all stained up. They have.

Ah ha Jason.....now we know your secret to taking those corners at full bore.....an anti-G flight suit.
But where do you keep the pressure tank???

I've seen coveralls on the net from $7.95 to $250 Dave. That's my point....there's just to dang
many choices.
The last pair of coveralls that I bought, was in high school for auto shop class way back in the 50's.
They didn't have the fancy designer weaves and styles back then, just those heavy blue mechanics
Herringbone jobs with the buttons up the front. Knowing me.....I've probably still got them around
here, hidden in a box somewhere.....better not throw that away.....you never know when you might need it!

I looked at some old vintage or reproduced racing suites, but for something I knew I was
gonna get mud all over? Nope. For what I paid I'll just replace 'em and transfer the patches when they get too disreputable. Which is about now.

They are the Red Kap brand.
