#1 Trim colour change S3 V12 2+2

Hi Guys
My painful restoration of my June 1973 Series 3 V12 2+2 is nearing completion. The car which I have owned since !977 is Green Sand with olive interior. Soul searching as it was I decided to change the colour as I was having a complete nut & bolt restoration. This means I will need to change the interior. I am trying to follow the factory default of the car. I am changing the exterior to a Jaguar colour navy/midnight blue so the interior will be changed to the Jaguar biscuit colour. My question is to anybody that has an original June(ish) 1973 with biscuit interior as to the colours of the sun visors and headlining. My understanding is that the headlining was grey irrespective of interior colour and in my case the sunvisors were black. I read in JCNA that some were delivered with the black sunvisors instead of the trim colour and I can vouch for that as my current olive interior is original with black sunvisors.
Any help appreciated
