Paint Code Problem

I have an 05 fofo and im trying to find my paint color. I know the Ford paint code is FL but it comes up Toreador Red on the paint code chart, but MY color is Sangria Red Metallic. Does anyone else have this similar problem? I know for a fact the 2 colors are slightly off from one another and i just purchased an SVT rear wing and i want to paint it to match without having to color sand and buff it to high hell just to blend it. Any input on this would be GREAT!!!

Every thing I find says FL is Toreador Red and JV is Sangria Red Metallic.

I also do not see Sangria Red Metallic listed for the Focus in 2005.

Don't see Sangria Red Metallic till 2008

Check the phone book for your local PPG automtive paint dealer and have them verify your color. Or your dealer bodyshop.

Ford will some times do special runs If a dealer or customer orders enough cars. Might have been a special order.

^^ not sure but the above paint code is correct and you can order it online now. Just say your car is an 09 focus and it will be available. I just ordered the 12.9 oz spray can and clear coat.

Sherwin-Williams is not an auto paint manufacturer. If you want a match get PPG from Painters Supply, or Automotive Color. Or whatever suplier is in your area.
