Lotus Elan

Small lockdown project

As I can't get out to the clothes shops (who am I kidding, I rarely buy clothes) I decided to make my standard Johnny Cash man-in-black t-shirt a bit more interesting with the help of the old man's designs! The image hasn't transferred as well as I'd like but I'm more than happy with it. It's just a printed up and iron-on job.
99.9% of the work was done by the artist, I just offered the idea up and did some work on the lettering.
Another design was done with the letter T visible but for some reason I didn't like it and went for the engine in front of the lettering (and obscuring the T) rather than behind.

I had a hoody done by a printing firm quite a while back which has turned out fairly well (again, not perfect) but is the wrong colour for a grease monkey like me to wear regularly! My brother's wife claimed it before he got chance!
It has a large version of the engine on the reverse side too which looks pretty good!

Makes a change to be fiddling with Lotus bits that aren't oily!
