1967 Historical gloves set

First of all, please read carefully before downloading files because you'll know what you get and what you can possibly do.
I try to do my best but excuse me for my poor english.

My intentions :
Since I play gpl (more than 10 years now), I always find gloves sometimes poor, blocky (still find blocky) or inacurate.
So I decided to make my own versions. I also wanted to have different gloves for each teams.
Of course I tried to make historically correct gloves for each teams as I don't like fantasy in GPL.
I don't have the skill or kowledge to start files from scrath, so I based my work on existing mips. Brabahm's gloves are based on Jackseller's mip and Eagle's gloves are based on Thomas Laechele textures for exemple. I credit them in the "read-me" text included in the .zip file. But if for some reasons they don't allow me to share the modified files concerned, I will delete them from the pack.

What will you find in the ".zip"?
Gloves, and only gloves. If you are interested by suits (arms) seen in my sceenshots, I use Thomas Laechele's mips find in his website.
I simply changed one or two things to my tastes for my personnal use.
Notice : It is not a fullset of all existing gloves of all drivers. I made choices detailed below, but I may make some more later...

Brabham Team :
Black leather gloves from Jackseller are very close to the right ones worn by Jack or Denny. So I started my work from his file. I shortened them a bit, changed the wrist and the back of the hand thanks to a picture found in the web of the real glove.
Alternative glove for this team : None.

Lotus Team :
The most of times Clark and Hill used Les Leston Protex gloves. But I decided to dedicate the Protex to Ferrari Team. I updated them from my first version
In the early 67 season, Clark (not sure for Hill) used black leather gloves but a different kind from Brabham's.
Alternative gloves for this team : Ferrari gloves.

Cooper team :
Pedro Rodriguez used light brown leather gloves whereas Jochen rind sometimes used the same kind of gloves as Brabham. They often used "Protex" too.
Alternative gloves for this team : Brabham and Ferrari gloves.

Honda Team :
My favorites!!!! The black and red leather gloves! Surtees always worn them during the season. I updated  them from my first version. If only I could find the real ones on eBay I will buy them.
Alternative gloves for this team : None

Eagle team :
Dan gurney often used "Protex" and maybe the same as Surtees' gloves for Monaco GP (I think). The ones I chose are used by Gurney for Nurburgring (maybe Spa too).
It is a kind of yellow glove with brown grip on the palm of the hand.
Alternative gloves for this team : Ferrari gloves.

BRM team :
Some kind of Les Leston Protex but brown instead of black. I updated them from my first version.
Alternative gloves for this team : I don't know (None?)

Ferrari team :
I chose Les Leston Protex for this team. I hesitated with Lotus team, but I had to make a choice.
Alternative gloves for this team : Honda gloves (maybe another ones)

Feel free to correct me if I made mistakes.

One last thing, if an administator othis forum can delete my two previous posts about gloves it shoud be clearer for everyone.

Hope you will like them.

Good job Dede. Thank you. I will use them according to my Historical carsets selections ( e.g Gurney had red gloves at Monaco, Clark used black leather until Bugatti then LP, etc.). :wave:
