Damaged my wheel; Is there touch-up paint for RS wheels?

AAARRRGGGHH. I turned a little too tight in a parking garage and chipped my left front wheel when it scraped a curb. Is there any touch-up paint that can be used on the midnight silver RS wheels? And can a little bit of fine grain sanding smooth out the chips? I HATE that it is scraped up, but can't really afford a new wheel right now

Called Bavarian Silver. The paint code is WA-9752

Sand, fill and repaint.

I feel your PAIN!!!..Its hard to see with that small windshield and that wide azz front end. Not to mention the 20" wheels poking out on a turn. I scraped my and found a guy who repaired the chip and the scrapes for $150 but he can't get the wheel to look exactly like the other wheels. And it is KILLING ME. Now I have to wait 2 weeks before we can find another solution.

I called wheel technologies off 35 and spring valley,they said $185 per wheel because of the paint finish. I dont know if thats good or bad,but my friend had a set of thridgen wheels repaired by them and they looked brand spanking new when he got them back.His had a huge chunk taken out of the wheel as well,which was way worse than curb rash .
