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!
Cool! Unfortunately I have been on two advance auto store and they only have either red or silver and no blue..


Car looks good, we have the same color only mine is sedan...

That really sucks that your car was hit after only having it for 3 days, I do kinda of see what you are talking about in your pics, but your dealership did an excellent job of fixing your car!

I do know the pain of having your car hit first hand, my 2013 Focus Hatch, Candy Blue was hit by a drunk driver about 6 weeks after I purchased it. The idiot then left the scene of the accident while I was in the ditch, and they still have not caught him. I do have pictures that I will upload shortly of the aftermath, and then after the car was fixed.....$6000 in damage was done. The right side of the car took the brunt of the damage, destroying the tie rods, ripping off the whole front bumper, etc.....collision at 60mph.

Things happen, but that was not a fun experience. My body shop seemed to be able to match the paint pretty well. I have not been able to see a difference in the paint color. However, I have noticed a slight difference in the front right door alignment. After the wreck, that door could not be opened, at this point it looks perfect, but the other day the light hit it just right and I noticed that it is off just a tad. It is not flush just perfectly. I may call them and ask about this, but the rest of the vehicle where the damage occurred is perfect, so I am not sure if this is just how it is or what. It is hard to see, but I will try and capture it in pics to upload for you all.

Well tinting is done. I had it done by a highly recommended local shop. They used 3M's nano-carbon tint, 33% front and 15% in the rears. Pic taken on an overcast day, but you can tell the difference.
