Default DQ stars

Right you are, Sam...
Here are 3 pix of the stars on the DQ pitman, none of which is dated.
1) is probably 1978, judging by the size of the print, and my accessibility to the fantail.
2) is in L&D 15 here, probably 1979, as the Voyages to America sign is no more (1973-78) on the Sundeck railing
3) I'm guessing 1980. Who changed the stars from yellow to red? A second look at this and a companion pix lead me to think late summer 1980, as this is the newly built wheel after the shaft cracked in June/July of '80...
