So shit got very out of hand very quickly here.

As you know I last raced July 25th with the karts. With all that happened with Millan and me being thrown a shit ton of pebbles, rubber and stuff during the races, as well as having to almost submerge myself in sunscreen because my white ass can't avoid getting sunburnt, I wanted to up the safety game a bit.

I started looking for overalls to wear for the endurance series just in case something bad was to happen + to avoid going through the whole sunscreen+pebbles+rubber thing next time (and to also look the part, I won't lie lol). I was debating getting some one layer "mechanic" overalls like some wear, and be done with it. They're like 70 euros a piece and do the job of keeping crap out of my body, but we're also here for safety so I said fuck it, I've not gotten anything for myself this year + you never cheap out on safety. I got to looking and found a couple models that would do the job.

After a lot of debating, when I was about to check out, I wasn't going to pull the trigger on shoes as well, but thinking about it and using the exact same 2 excuses above + the overalls being discounted like 30 bucks from their standard price, I got to looking at shoes just in case. Guess who found a pretty damn slick pair of boots (cos buying just one is kinda pointless you know lol) for another 40 euros off retail price.

So in the end I went from a 70€ overalls to some 170+80€ overalls and shoes. I was kind of regretting it as soon as I paid lol but then I did some math and found It's all good so yeah, we're going to be all safe and looking slick for the next races.

Here's a couple pics after all this nonsense:
► Show Spoiler
Don't the shoes look too fucking good? I mean I know they're red, that's probably why, but damnnn. They should be here tomorrow hopefully so I'll post pics when they arrive.

Expensive stuff but I don't care :)

Never ever cheap out on safety! Very nice purchase and it also looks good. Maybe expensive, but they last a long time. I have a Sparco racing overall and shoes.

Exactly what I thought. It's unlikely stuff will happen but what if, you know.

Overalls are here today but shoes aren't in stock right now, so 2nd-6th of September they should be here.

Pics later :)
