Hot Magenta

6 posts in this topic

I have this great colour with my Titanium Fiesta but have encountered a problem. To date, Ford say that they will not be producing a touchup repair kit for this colour and any damage has to be done in the dealer bodyshop. This means that the stone chip I have just acquired on the bonnet will cost a fortune to repair ! Be warned if you are contemplating this (otherwise fantastic) colour. Unless someone out there knows otherwise or has an answer.

Have this colour myself and encountered the same problem.

Found the solution.

Halfords will do an exact match in the paint mix section,cost £8.99 for a small pot with a brush.

They will also mix an aerosol,not sure of cost.

Hope this helps you and others that have the same colour.

Thanks for that I will try Halfords. I went to the dealer to find what the paint code was and they wouldn't/couldn't tell me. Their computer just said "Hot Magenta" which is what is written in my service book. Is the paint code part of the numbers on the VIN plate on the door pillar ?

Yes, you can find the paint code there :D

I've got my Hot Magenta touch up bottle from Halfords now. Initially they said they needed the paint code but couldn't find it on the door plate unless it was "JA8" which seems unlikely. The Halfords manager rang a couple of people and obtained the 'formula' for the mix. It was £9.99 for a small bottle with a brush, haven't tried it yet. I suspect Ford are keeping the code to themselves.
