Mercedes Benz Spray Paint ???

The engine bay of my 300TE has a few spots where the paint is cracked, or otherwise damaged.

I was wondering if anyone has found/used a touch-up spray paint for just such an application. The paint would have to be a match, or a close match, to the original paint.

Thanks for any information and/or suggestions.

Thanks

I'll contact them. What do they need? The color code from the car's ID plate?
