Just wondering if anyone can help me out with the paint code on my EL. The plate says its K, anyone know the actual name as i want to get some touch up paint for it. It is blue in colour, someone has told me its galaxy blue but i cant find that colour in the books that the touch up paints makers put out. Thanks

I saw this post and felt sorry for you that no one had replied so I rang the local ford repairs centre. The EL model came in five flavors of blue, none of which have a K in the colour code at all. Are you sure you got the right details? the only thing close to K is K1 which is Gun-Metal (the colour of Surreal's car) and I can't imagine you confusing that with blue.

More details needed...

If your car is indeed blue and you have a K on your VIN; it's had a respray; with no change in the plate...

K1 is definitely the Gun Metal colour.

Hey guys, kind of you to reply :b
Well anyway i went and looked at the plate again and realised i was reading the TRANS instead of PAINT.
Now the paint is actually GY.
So sage if you could use your magic to find the colour for me it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks heaps for the effort guys.

I got a small tube of touchup paint from Ford for about $12...

I however bought a large spray can of the same paint for $20 from Kmart... So I guess shop around.
