Default Paint touch up on center caps

Has anyone here had any luck touching up the paint on their OEM center caps? Mine are a little scratched/chipped from rocks and I'd really like to fix them if at all possible. Some type of silver metallic paint was what I had in mind, but if anyone else has done differently I'd like to hear how. Thanks!

Try the Duplicolor Metalcast paint. Just remember, to prep the surface you're going to have to scuff it a little with 320 grit paper. Also, use a clear engine enamel 10-15 minutes after the final coat, lightly, to keep the rock chips from ruining your day in the future.

I made a DIY once maybe on .com or .org about redoing the center caps.
Might still be listed in the diy section.
