Re: Paint code

Thanks for the reply - There are a number of areas of white visible in the interior & under the bonnet of my sister vehicle & it’s definitely a gloss finish. It appears to be closer to a true white than Limestone, but i’ll try to make a comparison - Cheers

Re: Cheshire Fire Service Stage Ones

This looks very much like an ex Cheshire Fire Appliance, which were all fitted withy these oil coolers. Is it one of the DMB 901 - 908X series? If so, let me know and I may be able to help.
