You might try enamel pens at Hobby lobby or Michaels...

I used Testors, but One Shot is better paint.

I'm not sure about Testors or One Shot. When I shot a 1950 trunk handle I had, I used Krylon Regal Blue Aerosol (51901). The handle to the far left is used OEM. The one in the middle is NOS, and the handle to the far right is the handle I resprayed. It was close enough for me.

Here is another vote for Testors. Take your part to the model store and look for the closest but slightly darker match. Take your time and be careful. It should turn out great!

Good luck with yours!
