FYI paint code TR (Medium Graphite Metalic) is exterior trim code for fender flares in case anyone is interested.

...The term "Wedgewood" comes from the Famous English Pottery family, The Wedgewood's...There are also other colors such as Wedgewood Green that were made famous by this family...;)

..Some other facts about "Wedgewood" can be found here..
http://www.answers.com/topic/wedgwood

"Wedgwood blue is a light shade of blue; the term is used for example to describe some RAF uniforms."

"Josiah Wedgwood may refer to several men from the Wedgwood pottery dynasty"

"Thomas Wedgwood may refer to several members of the Wedgwood family of famous potters, it was a name used for the first son, giving the line"

Just to clarify--

UA is NOT BLACK!!!
it is actually called, and is, EBONY

If you have some mixed you will see them mix brown and blue into the black base--FYI

it is not a true jet black, although, Ford does have a true Black color

Ebony has a slight, but still present, brownish tint in the black

Hi Tbars4
FYI my UK explorer has Colour (i mean color in US) has the codes FLRC so the main body is FL and the lower half and arches are RC.
Both of these codes appear in your US list.
Also FL listed as Torreador Red c/c. Reading earlier posts someone said that it includes clear coat. Surely it means the colour base is applied then c/c is applied over to acheive the required finish.

Hi yes forgot to say but my tag is under the bonnet. I haven't checked the door pillar as my truck is at a workshop and i couldn't get the doors open as is wedged between a couple of cars, so checked under the bonnet and luckily enough there it was.
