    ...Drem Mk2 castings seem to have been painted signal yellow when originally fitted...
    UPDATE
    I've closely examined the remaining finish on the recovered C6 parts, and it is a thin black bituminous covering, applied after the unit was bolted down.
    No trace of yellow was found underneath this finish.
