Firewall writing

Below is what was on my '66 GTO post car before I had it blasted.
Can anyone help me figure out what it reads and maybe explain what it stands for?

I would like to rewrite it.

Vinyl for vinyl top. My 66 says the same thing in the same yellow, a bit smaller and above that spot on the other side of the seam.

From where I'm sitting it looks like: M6KN.

MaL,
Is your car Martinique Bronze or Mission Beige?

Maybe that "6" is a "b". So "mb" for the colors.

In the markings I've seen on the 'net, it seems at least the first two digits are the color(s) for the exterior.

For instance, my Baltimore built 67 firewall had a real sloppy LG. I assume it is for Linden Green. There are two digits after that but I can't correlate those to anything. Perhaps someone out there knows?

Car is coded as HH (Palmetto Green top and bottom) and is the color found when we came across orig paint.

I'm agreeing with the M6KN. If anyone ever breaks the firewall codes, I would love to know.

I better get to writing it while the fenders are off.
Thanks for the extra eyes!
