Hi guys

Since the weather is better I have decided to declare war on the brown spotty dease...

Got most of the bit and bobs required But Im not sure where my paint code is Located...Never had to look for one before.

I looked on the plate under the bonnet and I didn't see anythink obvious...... just vehicle weights

I think my focus is Tonic Blue just by looking at the paints in Halfrauds

Any help finding my paint code would be very much appreciated

Have a look at the label on the drivers side door frame.

Or look on this site-

Enter your VIN or registration number and you'll get your paint name.

Im in the Tonic crew too! its a nice colour, but being metallic, a little more awkward for scratch and chip repairs!

Yes, I concur with that.
If your car is tonic blue then the code there will be Z something.
Mine is O3 which refers to moondust silver and the year the paint colour was first introduced. (colours with a different second figure could be slightly different)
If you take your two figure code to ford they'll tell you the finis code for your paint.

Look to the box on mine and you'll see what I mean.
Same place as marked on Jeebowhites picture.

Hey Guys Just back home and logged on, Dont know what say but thank you all for your help :D and for taking the time to take pics and find links :D

I had a better look on the drivers door.....but still did not see the plate, I will have another look and inspect every inch of the door, I do remember seeing a two letter code under the bonnet and Im sure the first was a Z and iirc it was the second last code.

Cheers again folks :D :D
