I just texted you 4 pictures. I have some 68 and 69 that are white but the 70 through 72 are yellow.

Excellent - thanks all for the replies. Got your text/pics as well Scott.....thank you.

I was removing the old paint from a speedminder needle today and it looked white until I started removing some then it appeared to be an off-white and a bit yellow when the paint scrapings/dust was wiped onto a white paper towel.

Sounds like a pale yellow is the ticket.

Thanks again everyone.
