Hi, I was wondering if anyone can decipher this paint code please.

TRIM: 0956-18E
PAINT: 585-0211

It’s on an HG Kingswood utility. I believe it to be a fleet colour. Thanks

I’ll get it for you later, if Dr Terry doesn’t beat me to it.

Hi HK, Phil Bartollo has a HG RACV yellow Panel Van.
Is this a different colour too. You can ask Phil for the number if you need it.
Cheers.

There is like 30 pages of Fleet customer colours with maybe 100 per page. Some are repeats (used by more than one customer) but still a massive amount.

The paint code for R.A.C.V. Yellow is 00012. So if its Acrylic it will be 568-0012 as most of these double or triple digit codes I have in HQ-HZ look like 0091 or 0105 or similar, probably 585 prefix on HK and earlier so 585-0012. I don't have its combination code though.

I've got combination number 915 listed as RACV Pale Gold (Fleet Colour) with shade number 0012.

If at first you don't succeed, just call it Version 1.0

It's not actually called RACV Pale Gold. Just Pale Gold as it is not exclusive to RACV. It was also used at least by Newcastle Transport and Haulage Co, and United Beverages Pty Ltd.
