I was at 1 Sqn when 800 was painted at BASS, AFB Hoedpsruit. I lost contact with the guy that painted her (he was a meticulous aircraft modeller, he once spent almost 20 hours on a 1/48 F-16 cockpit) and it looks like he isn't in the SAAF anymore. Anyway , as far as I remember, the colour scheme was inspired by the paint scheme applied to a series of 1978/9 Datsun ZX280's.

To me the 800 paint scheme is evocative of the black and gold Lotus F1 livery of the late 1970s.
