Further to my previous post on TACR2a Paint Codes to which Gary responded giving



BS 381 C 537 - Signal red

BS 381 631 - Grey

BS 381C 216 - Eau-De-Nil"

I found that the red was spot on, the Grey (which is fairly dark) what was in the inside of my rear locker and the Eau de nil didn't match my interior which is a distinct light grey (maybe stone). In the end I had a colour match done on the latter at B&Q (which I was very impressed with) they printed me a docket for future reference, hope this contains the necessary for anyone else who needs it:

I alway's thought the Eau-De-Nil was aircraft spec primer/undercoat.

It was the cab and locker colour for the RAF TACR 1. I have used it in my NATO Green TACR1 and it looks great.
