paint touch up

I had an old manual door awning replaced with a new electric awning that really looks good and matches the main 20' electric side awning. The old door awning had rusty pipe rails that attached to the side of the coach around the door as seen in this picture.

The new awning has no rails and is only attached at the top;

My question how can I cover or touch up the paint where the old rails attached which was installed before the coach was painted. Now there are small white spots where it connected. I have the actual paint codes that could be used to mix a small quantity of paint. I remember a few years back I was buying a used car from a dealer and it had some small scratches. They had an outside vendor come and repair the scratches and he used what looked like a small air brush painter that seemed to work well on a small area. I know I can take it to a pint and body shop but was hoping someone has more experience on this than I do so I will know what can be done before I talk with a body shop.

Thanks

Check out paintscratch.com
They can probably fix you up a small batch.
If not, check with Nate at innate.com He can probably fix you up.

I looked on paintscratch.com but could not match the color codes I have. I sent an email to innate.com with the color codes to see what they can come up with. I believe this is Sherwin Williams auto paint and the codes might not match from what I saw on some other posts. Airstream refers to these as manufacturer number:

Med Gold Met MB-60121
Beige Met U7-47134
Med red Met MB-51523

If that doesn't work, a local auto paint store should be able to match it up for you.
You can take your fuel filler door or something the color you want in and they can scan/match it.
