In Topic: Candy Red Metallic Or Pearl Or ????

Got this sorted by going back to paint shop and getting him to try a different supplier. Car was a month old at the time, not a year. Seems mica is added to pearl paint and not the metallic, so original supplier was using wrong mixture.

I know post is old, but in case anyone still looking for how one may look. Just had a Witter detachable fitted, it does require a bumper cut,  but hardly visible as its the underside of the diffuser. Images, with and without it attached.

Hi, yes i agree my car is Pearlescent, as thats the option i chose. The paint code on the car is U6 - which is red candy tint CC, no mention of metallic or pearl. Now if you go to ford.co.uk and choose the candy red colour the only option is candy red metallic.... Not Pearl. So my car has been painted in U6 pearl, my bonnet has been painted in U6 metallic, and the only option now is U6 metallic it seems. Has Pearl gone from any of the options for good and how do i get paint if i should need it in the future?

Ok i have found the U6. Still there seems to be two versions of this paint, a Metallic or a Pearl. As above my car is described as Red Candy Tint CC. Has Ford now started painting in Non Metallic U6 (darker) as opposed to the lighter Metallic (U6)?
