GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

Guys,

Can anyone tell me the colour code for the grey strip at the bottom of the bumper.

The colour is Oxidized Steel and it is a Ford accent colour, but no one at Ford/FPV will give me the code.

Also does this grey bar come off easily as I will need to get the stone chips taken out sometime.

Cheers,
Al

Re: GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

That grey part is part of the bumper bar,it's one piece and i had the same problems with my previous T-Series,you will just have to go to a panel shop to get some touch up paint made.
Cheers John

Re: GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

Thanks mate,

The most obvious place for stone chips and they don't supply touch-up paint.

Unbelievable!!!

It's the little things!!

Hey Hawkey, go to Super Cheap and buy some of that clear stick on stuff like they have used around the rear wheel arches, stick it on the lower front of the splitter and prob solved, its virtually invisable and cheap as chips.

Re: GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

Strapps as usual John.
The guy they use has done a top job as usual and Aaron came down and did the detail. Looks immaculate once again.

Interesting point to note: the touch up guy made a point to keep the paint as thin as possible as there is a fair bit of flexing in that lower front panel and it cracks very easily if left too thick.

I also have little bottles of the grey and the blood orange now.

Cheers
Russ

Re: GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

Russ,

Do you mind posting how much the detail cost, and how long Strapp's had your car for?

l think this is a good thing to have done around every year.

Cheers

Re: GT Bumper Bar Touch-up Paint

Hi Mondie
They vary a fair bit based on the amount of touch up work that needs doing.

In this instance the total was $391 of which $200 was the touch up job and the balance the detail. Touch up work consisted of the front bar and half a dozen stone chips in various places.

The car was there for about 5.5 hours.

Cheers
Russ
