Hey guys

This might have been aready covered before but i need to do some paint touch up work on my EL fairmont. basically i have a few stone chips on the front and some paint has been removed from other car doors (Bloody carparks).

Any way i need to have a couple of questions answered

Where do i find out what the code is for my car?
Where can i buy the paint?
How much will it cost?
is it easy to touch up yourself?

Thank heaps

Zacha

Any automotive paint supplier/panel beater/resprayer and should be able to also through ford.

Touchup kits vary and will depend on the size of the area to touch up and whether or not your model had a metallic based paint (not too much more but slightly more expensive)

Yes most small chips etc are nice n easy just need to make sure you get the right stuff so the result doesnt stand out like u used nail polish or something ;)
