    Lighter Boeing Grey Colour

    The 737 overhead has two shades of grey, the darker, commonly accepted RAL7011, and a lighter grey on the vital systems panels (fuel, elec, hydraulics and air systems).

    Anyone know what this lighter RAL colour is?

    Re: Lighter Boeing Grey Colour

    RAL7031 is very similar to RAL7011, which is the dark gray/blue used on most of the 737's interior panels. I'm looking for the light grey colour used on the fuel, bus-transfer, hydraulic and bleed air system panels. I think it may also be the colour of the roof linings, it's very similar.

    Personally i thought it was white/cream coloured. If its the panels i'm thinking of on the overhead they're certainly more white than grey as far as i know.

    Re: Lighter Boeing Grey Colour

    There's definately a shade of gray in them. Take a look at this photo and compare the panel colour with the white toggle switch caps...

    It's almost the same colour as the Boeing style knobs.
