Can anyone shed some light on the faune or eggshell paint colour and code for the bulkhead or firewall on a Silver Cloud.

Geoff, but not those paint codes. The ones in the document you reference are, so far as I know, only the exterior colors.
Download the RR & Bentley Parts, Repair, Restoration & Other Resources Compilation and search for "Sahara". When I learned about this a number of years ago it went in there instantly, since it's such a piece of arcane information. Those who know Lawrence Durocher of the RROC-US know his reputation as being very meticulous about his restorations of the Clouds he's owned. He used the second of the two colors listed in the resources file and this is an image of his Cloud III engine bay while the car was in the process of being restored:

That is virual engine bay pornography...and I love it. Wish my Could I looked half that pristine! Of course the V-8 engine sits way down in the engine bay cavity and thus more of the bulkhead shows. My first impression upon seeing a Cloud II or III engine bay with air silencer tipped away, was, "where's the top half of the engine?" For that reason alone I really do prefer the look of the 6 cyl engine bays.
