If anyone is looking for the Blue Candy touch up kit, I have one, brand new in the box. Never got a chance to use it before I traded in my Focus.

Contains the clearcoat and the basecoat. Send me a PM if interested.

My car was advertised as Candy Blue, but after reading over this thread and looking at so many pics, I'm thinking someone made a mistake. My car is definitely darker than all of these. (Yup...Kona Blue I'm thinkin)

I see you updated your information to show Kona blue. That is a very rare color because they discontinued it pretty quickly! It's a very nice color. And at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that we like the color we chose.

There was a similar color over 45 years ago (don't recall the name they used for it) that looked just as good on a Ford I wanted to buy then:



Maybe that's why I liked it so much when I first saw it on the Mk3 Focus, then -- poof -- it was gone. Considering all of the suffering the tsunami caused everyone who lived through it, having to pick a different color on a new car isn't something I should complain about, but I'm still hoping Ford will bring it back before I buy a Focus.

Unless it gets damaged and requires repairs. Then the thing that really matters is that the painter is good enough to get it right.

It was a tough choice between red and blue for me too.. I even had some left over red from my last project...

I just got a can of high heat blue engine paint by duplicolor.. It was spray so i took the calipers off and sprayed away. I did my engine plastics too. The color is almost identical to my blue candy.

I found mine at my local advanced auto store... hope it helps!
