RS logo symbolism

Maybe you guys know it already but it's a cool discovery for me, that the RS in the Carrera RS lettering is a continuous line symbolizing a race track.

Take a look.

I realized this by accident when I was in the process of making RS style letting for 3.2 instead that I was going to use on my car, but since that would make a broken line unfortunately it would never work.

As I was doing research I also found this site with a lot of info about the RS.

That is cool! By they way, I'll pay my fair share if you want to make two copies of whatever you come up with for a ducktail decal! I'm not sure I want an "RS" but I sure wouldn't mind a "3.2" in a similar "RS" type script (even if not continuous LOL!).

I did come up with a design, but I scrapped the idea, because of the reason above. Nonetheless, take a look and let me know if you're interested.

(sorry for some reason the uploaded image is not displaying)

Here is my ducktail decal concept with no 3.2 on it.
BTW, the reflector is going to be replaced with an aluminum panel with louvers running across (that's what the masking tape is showing)

I may need a louver panel if you want to make extras.

I already have mine done, just waiting to get back the car from corner balance/wheel alignment and I will install. Check back at my other thread for updates.

Almost finished - the complete restoration of my 87 Carrera
