Question I need to repair paint damage on a 2009-Era AMG Engine

These are photos of an engine bay that someone tried to use an apparently caustic chemical to attempt to clean, likely before they realized it was paint. Now it's worse, and I need to try to repair it. I understand it's only cosmetic, but it would surely look much better if it were to be corrected, especially after a new $160 badge was ordered, ha ha. If it wasn't an "AMG Engine" I wouldn't care so much, but since this is a vital part of the cars image or heritage, I feel it's important to try to repair.

Any suggestions, or paint codes that are know to sort of match?

I would appreciate your input.

Thanks in Advance!

Maybe you can just use a wheel silver paint,,,it doesn't have to match anything else does it ?
