Ford red caliper paint

Recommended Posts

It looks like a stone got thrown into my rear wheel and it's chipped the paint on the caliper in a few places. Does anyone have a link or paint code for the Mk7 Fiesta ST red caliper paint? And can you even buy touch-up paint for them?

I've seen this recommended as a very close match on other forums (would be 15% off with my FOC card too): https://www.halfords.com/motoring/paints-body-repair/specialist-decorative-paints/halfords-brake-caliper-paint-red-250ml

Even if it is it must be a high temperature version of it.

Is this any good Tim? dont think it's high temp though. The only high temp stuff seems to be in the usa at silly money.

If it's just standard race red I'm going to be a bit miffed as I binned the race red touch up pen I had when I sold my old car :wallbash:

The Halfords paint is no more expensive and has a maximum working temperature of 80 degrees so seems like a better idea, assuming it's the right red...

Just visit a model shop who sells Humbrol Enamels! Buy a little tin of red gloss and you'll be fine, the older the enamel gets - the hotter the enamel gets it cures like glass.

£1.60 a tinlet and there's different types of red so no doubt there will be one that matches.

As you are only touching them up you should be ok with something as close as😨

Yeah, it looks close from this thread (and I'll definitely be using proper caliper paint):
