Anyone who saw Siffert driving the STP-March works car in the early part of the 1970 season could not have missed the iridescent glow that emanated from it as it circulated the various tracks. This was not from the scintillating performance of the March 701 but from the paintwork, which we described loosely as dayglow.
This special paint was an STP product called “Reflecta Glo” and it is now on sale in Great Britain, so anyone keen enough could have a scintillating Mini like the STP racing car. However, what STP have in mind is the use of the paint in certain places for the purpose of making your car, motorcycle, perambulator or walking stick more visible in fog or darkness. It comes in a 28s. pack comprising three pressurised cans, undercoat, colour and lacquer finishes and, apart from the March colour of Rocket Red, can be had in green or arc chrome from normal goody shops or direct from Link-Hampson Ltd., Monotype House, Fetter Lane, London, EC4.
