And as you can see I have the code RZ paint.
Glad you found the $400 flakes . Since a lot of paint now has a level of metallic, it's sometimes doesn't register visually...until you look at say a Race Red which looks very flat comparatively.

If Red Candy is one of those near matches and it costs Ford money to reinstate it, they may never bring back U6. We'll just have to wait and see.
THANKS 2012sel! That is best best clarification I have heard so far. Unfortunately, it confirms what I feared. That my paint will be extremely tough to find/create if I am ever cursed by damage.
