    Default Is there any place that sells OEM Ford Touch-Up Paint for our model years?

    I'm looking for those small touch-up paint bottles that hold like .25-.50 oz. of OEM Ford paint with the brush inside. Obviously I want a new one and not a 35 year old one. I'm looking for Dark Gray Metallic, paint code 1D. Usually you can just go to a Ford dealership, but I doubt my local Ford dealership will carry this color.

    Does anyone know if this is something I can find somewhere or do I need to just go to a bodyshop and get the paint custom mixed for me?

    Thanks!

    Here is one online. Have not tried yet. Waiting for warmer weather.
    Fair prices, ship cost.

    Am interested too in Calypso Green spray paint for my Ranger.
    Have bought a pint locally and had it put into several spray cans.
    That is the only way they sell. Buy the larger qty, transfer to spray.

    Car is black- nice inexpensive universal automotive black.
    Spare 2oz paint bottle with marble and brush top works good for touch up. Child lock cap sucks.
    Bottles seal and mix well, larger opening, better than the little 1/2 oz bottles that dry up in the neck.

    The car has a very nice glossy sheen on it, but there are major areas with paint chips a few millimeters wide. I'm hoping to at least fill in those chips so they aren't as noticeable.

    I just recently bought a touch up pen from these guys:

    They were the only place that had Polar White for my 83. I haven't used it yet because of the cold temperatures outside.

    If you only want a small amount here is a site that makes paint for airbrushing Model cars. Nice thing is they are factory correct. You can either use a tooth pick to fill or touch up with an airbrush.

    Unfortunately there are a few typical chip marks on the fender about the size of maybe less than half a cm, but the mark that concerns me is a big chip mark on the left rear fender about the size of 1.5cm or maybe the size of a dime if it were broken in half. I definitely need touch up paint to lay on heavy/multiple coats in this small area to make the chip mark not so noticeable.

    The funny thing is, from about 5 feet away and even up close the paint looks really great and shines very nice with a good wax job. It's just these couple of larger than your average paint chips you would expect to see on an older vehicle that stand out that I would to do my best to cover up since getting a paint job isn't in the budget.

    You may amaze yourself with some patience and proper prep and spray. Our cars were still single stage so you apply the paint, let dry and polish...
