Touch Up Paint Ordering

I have a question about how to order touch up paint from Ford. When I go on the website it seems to be that there is a three step process in order to "touch up your paint." There is a primer, the paint (Tuxedo Black Metallic in my case), and a clear coat. However when I went to order it, the primer and clear coat said they were not ship-able but the paint was. Do I have to order the set through my dealer? Is there a better aftermarket version?

All I got from my dealer was Base Coat and Top Coat, no Primer or Clear Coat (maybe it's also known as Top coat?)

This is what I'm talking about - http://www.fordparts.com/Commerce/Ca...keyword=paint# So I should just order the paint that applicable for my car and it comes in a set?

I ordered touch up paint from http://www.automotivetouchup.com/

I have now received it, and it looks great, but it has been too cold for me to use it yet, so I can't really give a full review yet. So far I'm happy with them though.

only certain shippers will ship aerosol spray paint, maybe the shipper that fordparts uses won't.
