can anyone help please with paint codes.
We have a dark red Ford Focus 2001 model which needs a replacement front wing.
I ordered what I thought was the correct 2xpack paint on Amazon Pepper Red Metallic but it turned out to be much too dark
I contacted Ford who tell me that there is 2x Red pepper paints for that year
They tell me my paint code (P8) is for the darker Red Pepper paint ( code 1778326 )
Problem is the Hycote Red Pepper paint sent by Amazon is too dark and its a Pearl paint not metallic Amazon seller swears that there is only one Red pepper paint anyway.
Ford won't post the paint and I'm 110 mile round trip away from nearest parts stockist. If I order from a local Ford dealership its going to cost me £30 for a 150ml can with laquer and it might be the wrong colour paint again
Beginning to lose the will to live and wish I'd never started the job to be honest.
