Machined Aluminum Color - Austin Wheels

Hello. I repaired curb rash on one of my Austin wheels. All is smooth, but there is noticeable color difference between machined and sanded parts. I believe this can be somewhat remediated by spraying polished/sanded parts with some paint. Does anyone have any suggestion which color is similar to machined aluminum? I tried searching web, but had no luck. Lowes has some rust-oleum "chrome" or "bright" color spray pain that looks close.

Thanks

There is no paint that can actually come close to a machined finish. From what I've read online, even wheel repair shops have a hard time replicating the factory finish.
