Default Ford Oxford white vs Duplicolor Oxford White

I have an '01 Ranger Four door 4x4. Paint code YZ, Oxford White. I am color matching the door handles, tailgate handle, door locks, whipper blade arms, valance, and fendr flares. So far I have done the door and tail gate handles, grill door locks, and wiper blade arms. Last night when I sprayed them and it looked good, today i wake up after it dried all the way it has more of a yellowish to it then the body color. I used the Duplicolor Oxford White, preped it by sanding it with P600 Wet/Dry paper, washed with soap and water, then cleaned with Duplicolor Grease and Wax Remover, Sprayed with Duplicolor Adhesion Promotor, 5 coats of Duplicolor Oxford White, finished with 4 coats of Duplicolor Acrylic Coating.

Any ideas why the color difference?

I would guess that one of the other things you used aside from the paint itself caused the color to be off. I had an oxford white ZX2 and the Duplicolor spray paint matched perfectly. If anything, it may have been just the slightest bit whiter than factory.

I had the same problem on an Oxford White Ranger, the Duplicolor paint seemed a bit yellower also... I think it's just the teeniest bit off...

I switched to the Krylon Fusion Gloss White and its a damn close match to the Oxford White, just a lil brighter.

If you're painting the doors, absolutely. If just the handles, it's up to you, but I would do it. Makes for a much cleaner looking job

PS I just painted my cab corners with Dupli Oxford White. It was a slight amount brighter. I used a white primer before hand so I didnt run into discoloring issues.

We have several auto body supply stores that will match the paint exactly. It's usually about 16-20 dollars a can, but worth it. Plus it's actual auto body paint. I love that smell.
