Scratched gas cap - paint color?

So I've got a beautiful scratch across the top of my fuel filler assembly... thing, and some of the finish around it has been rubbed off as well, leaving a darker color below. I'd like to try to repaint it instead of replacing it right now, so does anyone have thoughts as to what color/type of spray paint would be good to use for a close match? I was thinking about trying one of the OEM auto colors (maybe Honda Satin Silver Metallic?) but I'm open to other suggestions.

I think it's now whatever color you want to use!

whatever you use, get a 2-part clear coat on it so that the paint will be gas-resistant.


Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!
