Who can help me with photos of old F1 driver Kenny Acheson?
I search photos of his Arai helmet in close-up from 1983.
He rode into then in RAM - March.
I want paint my Arai helmet in replica.
Thanks in advance, Adriaan.

Help, who can help me?
In my earlier questions to Andretti, Rebaque and Cesaris I am helped.
But Acheson's really very difficult.
I have pictures of him, but at great distance.
But not 1 piece in close up.
Is there's someone who can help me?
I think I remember that clear pictures of Acheson in F1 magazine 'Grand Prix International' stand.
Help, who can make me happy?
Thanks in advance, Adriaan.

I thought I posted on this!!!

I believe Twin Window has/had one of Kenny's helmets, although I think it is/was a Shoei, but if anyone has pictures, it will be Mr Dent!

Now see some people could find that funny, weird or downright offensive. But I know what you mean...

Can someone for my make a copy of Kenny Acheson from magazine Grand Prix International of South Africa 1983?
There is only 1 photo of him in that magazine of about 8 cm wide.
You would do me great pleasure.
Thanks in advance.

Kenny in the F2 Ralt-Honda on the Nordschleife in 1982. His helmet was quite similar to the one he had during his spell with RAM March.

If you can get hold of a copy, 1985 Autocourse has a good, clear picture of Kenny on page 164.

He is living pretty close to me, If I bump into him I'll ask if he still has a lid, and take some pics.

@ReWind:
Giant thanks. that's exactly what I was looking for.

@BrendanMcF:
Beautiful that you live close to Acheson.
I would be very pleased if I can get pictures of Acheson's helmet from 1983.
Unfortunately I have no Autocourse 1985 (also not 1983).
Thanks in advance for your help.

I know this picture and I never understood why the front wheels are up in the air. Was the car lifted by a wedge or something?
