factory paint used on BAs

i was wondering if any body knows what paint company supplies ford with the paint used on the BA falcons.

a guy reversed into my front bumper and bonnet and i would be interested to see if the panel shops use the same brand of paint as the original.

the ute is a may `03 build in acid rush gold colour.

i hope that they can match it properly.

Re: factory paint used on BAs

Any metallics are very hard to match up when sprayed. It depends how the paint is mixed and how the metallic particles fall on the panel.

When I needed paint matched for my XD project we went to a place called EVIC paints, with a small piece of panel that hadn't been exposed to sunlight, and they matched it for us.
I then decided to change the colour, and we no longer needed the paint, so it was used on my father's old ford courier ute, with was a similar colour, and the finished paint is a perfect match.

I have heard blueprint is very difficult to match and this is why it was discontinued.

I think it was discontinued more due to the fact it was very popular, and they decided it had come to the end of it's run.
It did first come out on the T3 T series cars I think.

When I bought my car, it said there had been a small hit to the back quarter, but I can't see where, except for under the edge of the spoiler, I can see where it was rubbed back when being repaired as there looks to be a "grain" in the paint, and it reflects the light differently to the rest of the panel, but thats hidden by the spoiler, so I'm not too worried by it, as only I know it's there.
