I am in the process of restoring a DH/D which had been entirely covered in cream gloss paint inside and out and the roof and brick papers stripped from the exterior.  I can see that originally it would have had the "kitchen grapes" paper downstairs.  I was wondering if anyone has a sheet of this paper that I could borrow to scan in or even any scraps left that I could borrow? I'm also trying to find some roof paper "A" as Trevor advertises.  I have tried to contact Trevor but he must be away.

Also, does anyone have a DH/D in the original colours, I am trying to determine the colour of the flat roof.  It seems this one is off white underneath the gloss but that doesn't seem correct to me!

The flat roof should be matt black - there should be a picture of mine in the Lines Triang album in original condition.
