Touch up Paint

I'm looking for some touch up paint to fix some rock chips on my front bumper. I have a 2000 Performance Red GT. Whenever I go to search that year and model on a paint website I get 2-3 results for Performance Red . Anybody know what the paint code is or if there is a difference between them? Also what is a good site to order from?

The two letter code should be on the sticker on the inside of your door. Duplicator makes nice touch up paint.

<------ PRO Googler, lol.

And the ONLY place to get touch up paint is Dr. Color Chip. The $60 kit will look so good you will forget where you touched it up. And it will do ALOT of touch ups for your money.

Ford might not carry the color anymore. Check eBay...I had to buy my touch up on there (it was Ford touch-up)

I want to do this too. Was about to have the whole thing repainted. Time to save money for other upgrades
