Giallo Fly Yellow is actually a Porsche Yellow, even though its the fastest colour.
I agree it looks as if it has had a complete respray if the code doesnt match.
I was always led to believe that Giallo Fly was a Ferrari colour, but happy to stand corrected and bow down to your superior knowledge
Try Surface and Design, they may have your build records and could at least confirm the colour change.
Thanks for the advise, I have e mailed them and asked.
In the meantime I have had even closer looks and remain convinced that it has not been repainted.
I have had a reply from Surface & Design who sadly dont have build records for my car. What they do say, however, is that Triumph Lightning Yellow code is R1748, very similar to the R1487 on my chassis plate. So it would appear that either a simple typo at Bristol Avenue or a dyslexic engraver doing the plates that day.
Surface & Design, very helpful, thanks
