As my DX-100 inches toward a well earned place on my operating table, I'd like to touch up a few scratches on its front panel.  I know there's a supplier who offers newly screened panels, but $90 is out of reach for me.  Mine hasn't been abused, just the usual scratches that come with years of use.  Does anyone know of a stock paint brand and color that matches the gray parts of the Heath gray/silver line (like DX-40, DX-100, DX-60 etc.)?  If there's a close spray color, I could spray it into a cup and do the touch-up with an artist's brush or toothpick.  Any thoughts?

Breathing solder fumes since 1959.  That explains a lot.
