Touch Up Engine Paint

Has anybody found a close color match to the grey color the engine is? I used some rustoleum aluminum color to hit a few spots on the engine before. It matched all right but I am thinking maybe there is a better color? And it does not need to be heat paint. The rustoleum I used is still on it from 4 years ago. I am talking about small little touch ups with a small brush or q tip.
