A South African assembled S Type Jaguar markings

Recently I was asked if the colour codes on some Jaguar rear suspensions I restored were the orginals?

The reply was correct, I bead blasted the old paints away, re painted and did the colour bands as they were originally.

The splined rear hubs are none original to this car but could have been chosen as an optional extra in 1966 when the car was assembled.

The second colour, I wonder what they mean?

On this car the entire rear sub assembly was removed, taken apart and then rebuilt. The brakes front and rear had the same treatment, all new and that includes the booster,calipers and flexible hoses.
