Comments about Duplicolor Dark Toreador Red:

I decide that my gray 16 year old blah bumpers needed a paint job. While trying to decide on a color, I saw that the color of my pickup truck was produced in a rattle can. Excellent!
I bought the gray Duplicolor filler primer along with the clear coat. And the same color as my pickup trucks bumpers.
If you know how to prepare and paint correctly this paint works well.
Sand,wet sand, tape everything off, prime, wet sand a little more, wipe down with alcohol, then top coat with the color, sand a little if needed, wipe with the alcohol again, then clear coat. Wait between coats and take your time.
Very important, shake the can well to mix before painting and as you spray it on keep shaking the can. If you have paint left in the can turn upside down to clear the nozzle. This keeps the nozzle clean for future use.
(read the instructions on the can, this is all there)
Note, the clear coat doesn't have a ball in it to mix,just shake the can real well for a couple of minutes. Plus the clear coat in the can goes on quick, you might want to buy 2 cans.
And don't paint in high humidity conditions, wait for that nice day. You can't paint when it is too cold either.
The only cons I can think of that the cans are only 8oz. I think a larger can would be worth the price that you pay for it.
So all said, if you want to match your color and pay the price this paint is just fine.
If you know how to paint!
I gave it only 4 stars because of the can size.

    Comments about Duplicolor Dark Toreador Red:

    I am very happy with the results. Sanded and prepped the running boards on my F150. Were really scratched and nicked. Sprayed multiple layers and finished with a couple layers of clearcoat. Very happy with results. Looks so much better than before.
    Going to try and paint my used truck bed.

      Comments about Duplicolor Dark Toreador Red:

      Very disapointed in the sray results. The can leaked paint down the side. A second can did the same. The results were uneven and full of little blue splotches. Even after three coats!

      But I need the color

          A:

          I'm happy to help, Ken! This Duplicolor Dark Toreador Red (Part No. BFM0373) does not have a metallic finish. It is engineered to match Ford Paint Codes JL and JM for 2003 & prior to 2011 Ford vehicles.

          For a metallic type red for Ford vehicles, Duplicolor Toreador Red (Part No. BFM0344) or Redfire Pearl (Part No. BFM0379) for Ford Paint Codes FL and G2 respectively may be a close match. Duplicolor Merlot (Part No. BFM0377) for Ford Paint Code FX may also be a close match.
