You won't find a match at Autozone but Wurth makes a matching color. Should be able to order from their website.

If you want to go econo, I went to O'Reilly's (Kragen) Auto. They had various Duplicolor touchup paint in silver. I went with the Bright Silver for Hyundais (HY 01800). Seems to match pretty well.
