Hi All

My son has a 1998 1.6 16v LX in silver. Recently had the head skimmed and new gasket etc. Has a little bit of wear and tear and needs a bit of paint. Can any one tell me which of the numbers on the VIN plate is the paintcode ?

Have searched the forum with no luck!

Have something to contribute?

hi the paint code is on the vin tag if u look at the tag its black and silver with a row of boxes on the left hand side

the paint code is generaly the second code up it will normally be a letter and a number for example h 8

please be aware that when you go to the paint store you will need the paint code , reg number and the year as ford has used the same code throughout the years of manufacture even through the model changes so one code can relate to several different colours

ford paint codes are a nightmare

hope this helps out
