This notice looks a bit too pristine and colourful to be an original

No need to decode your paint code with a simple notice like this

Something nicely 'British' about walking into a parts department and asking for "a Gallon of Arden Green".

I do remember those multicolour engine-bay 'service' stickers, Neil. Some were re-created by owners' clubs (maybe by an ancestor of Russ Wallis?), but stocks of some of them lingered on inside Unipart for years.

The use of a watering can icon for coolant topping suggests a rather shoddy (but traditional) approach to coolant!

that looks old ! (half surprised someone hasn't nicked it)

....possibly on an old ByWay or similar (must google the law re driving on ByWays, I did about half a mile on one last week)

Things such as this: Googlemaps 'Pin Multiple Locations' can be a really useful bit of software, I made this one with Points of Interest relevant for me; for a recent trip up to the Derbyshire Dales

Thanks, they were all like that when I was alive :wink: There are a couple of petrol pumps at the side of the A836 at Altnaharah between Lairg and Tongue, it is about 40 miles long and that was the only fuel available I think last time we went that way they were looking a bit neglected but there was a sign on the wall saying 'For fuel ring bell at hotel' I have a picture of it somewhere, I will post if I can find it.

One of the fascinations of public transport, the proud Corporations across the Country had their own gorgeous liveries, and coats of arms, and yes those latin, and english inspirational mottos.

Took loads of photos at the trolleybusmuseum at Sandtoft when we were there earlier in the year.

That blue livery is from Walsall i do believe like this
