Cool touch up paint for laser red?

I need a spray paint for a little touch up. Does anyone know what comes close to the laser red that was on the 95 GT. I can't find anything on the shelf I guess its too old most touchup paints only go back 10 years.

Re: touch up paint for laser red?

the paint code is E9 I believe for laser red... you should be able to get some from ford.. as im pretty sure they used that color up into the 2000's

The touch up for Laser Red even from Ford does not match well. E9 Laser Red is a tri color and is impossible to match with a single paint

Re: touch up paint for laser red?

last look, around here they do not carry E9 anymore.. (sucks) but like above, its VERY hard to touch up, (even if you do it right , wet sand, touch up, dry, wet sand, then buff out still does not look right.

Cool Re: touch up paint for laser red?

well went to ford today thay want 10 bucks for a tiny bottle and dont even carry it in a spray can I just wanted to touch up a real rough place on the bumper till maybe next year when I hope to paint the whole car I have painted three other autos and have had pretty good luck in doing so but they were single stage paints I know the laser red is a three stage paint job but I want to paint it myself I mean whats so great about saying I spent a wad of cash to have this painted when you can do it yourself and sit back and look at it with that pride while your friends google over it.
I will admit painting the entire car is easier then touching up and making it blend together but I'm getting better with each try.
