Can anyone tell me the BS or RAL colour code for the grey used on myford la thes 50 years ago. Being slightly colour blind makes colour charts little help.

many thanks.

I could be wrong but I do not think it was a RAL or BS standard colour.

Thanks for the replies Gentlemen. Buying paint by post incurs a charge I was hoping to avoid as I have a good local supplier. They wanted to get it right so asked if I could come up with a BS or RAL code-- But life is never that simple. Noel.

Dark Admiralty Grey matches my ML7. Paint code is BS381C 632 or RAL7012

Paint type is important for oil resistance and synthetic enamel is the type you need.
