Yesterday I was at my local mom & pop auto parts store where I had some 8N Red paint mixed from John Smith's GM Centari recipe back in September, 2001. I brought the FORD Blue paint codes with me to find out first if they were still valid. It turned out they are all still good numbers. I specifically asked about the Ford Equipment Dark Blue, p/n MX700790 and got a recipe printout and pricing. Their costs are $13.00 for 1 pint; 1 quart is $38.51; and 1 gallon is $137.43. The minimum requirement is 1 pint and that will make up 3 rattle cans. Rattle cans are $11.99 each. I am going to start with three rattle cans first to see if it is exactly what I want. I'll report back after the with my findings.
