People remove them to repaint instead of masking them. Idiots!

Hmmmm.... I could be an idiot, yes,,, but I made the very difficult decision to remove my data label off the door when I restored my J Code Vert in 2015. As I completed a full rotisserie restoration, the car was sent out for media blasting. The doors had internal surface rust (yes, even though an AZ car, bare metal still rusts...), so these were sent out for chemical dipping to save the doors... So, I carefully removed and preserved mine and ordered the replacement from Marti Autoworks. Even if I was not sending the doors out for treatment, i would have removed the data label as leaving it and painting around it leaves a ridge that would show..., not acceptable in my books. So, too each their own, people have their reason's why they restore their car's as they see fit. I don't think it makes them any less a person or enthusiast...

My original was faded and partially painted over, so i scraped off the overspray and took a picture, then has Marti make a new one using the picture of the original. That way I had the correct weight values for my car. Marti has two colors available. From what I have seen light blue is correct for 73 cars.

Well - I found my very faint Data Plate but I am wondering....What color is 6B ? 
See picture below - Sure looks like 6B.  Not really looking like 6E but car is kind of medium yellow.
Not really Bright yellow.  Or do I have a 6C orig car with incorrect code if that's possible. 
Any explanation for 6B color code?
