Paint codes

Can anyone tell me the paint code that was used for the sung yellow ceiling or any modern equivalent,

Also, are there any owners that would be interested in a full set of interior flouresent lighting which I have for sale as they have just been taken out because one of the RMs is going back to light bulbs.

Re: Paint codes

Scan back a few pages where this has been discussed several times. Avenue Coatings in the Slough area supplied my last lot of Sung Yellow as they still had the pigments the records of what to mix. I don't have a contact number for them at the moment, but someone put it on here a while ago.

LT paint codes mean nothing except to LT.
