NOTE: 1: No color combination numbers are shown on Ford and Mercury cars.
NOTE: 2: Most of these colors have been established in both DULUX and DUCO. Please note that it is not always possible to make close matches in DULUX to DUCO colors and vice versa.
NOTE: 3: While Fords and Mercurys are finished in synthetic enamel, we recommend that spot touch-ups be made with DUCO rather than DULUX.
