Paint Question

What paint would I use to touch up the rectifier cover and the radiator?
I know it's Black, so let's start from there please.

The world is a pool table,and all the people in it are either stripes or solids. You alone are the cue ball.

I use Rust-o-leum black hammered finish. It's got a little shine to it and the hammered finish sort of simulates the sparkle in the OEM frame paint; well, sorta.

I tried Dupli-Color Universal Black scratch and fix Flat vs Gloss...Flat black match pretty good. Number 104. Just bought another last night. It dries to a nice mix with the original OEM.
