Is this what you're looking for?

It's know it's not the original colour but it looks like a high quality factory finish.

What paint

HI ! buddy i have one idea you just consult near car decorator and garage because they can easily tell which color is best for your car but finally you have to decided which one is good or not if you want just try and take other suggestion so you can also take help through Google you just search about this and they open with new ideas .

Thanks for share with me !

You'll find all my step by step instructions you need here on Detailing World if you plan to do the same.

And for info, the link above is the same type paint you need, I got mine from Frost Auto Restoration.

Incidentally someone on here did paint there covers in alloy silver as they wanted to restore the OEM look. If I find it I'll post it but it wasn't that long ago, I'm sure it was a car from Australia.

Best of luck.
