Raised FWD Scratch at Garage, Touch up Paint Suggestion?

Finally the unthinkable has happened, when I raised the falcon wing door at my workplace garage, the door hit a metal pipe that at the ceiling beam that the radar obviously has missed, that has left small scratch on the door. The scratch is small, it is thin like nail and about 1.5" long, but it shows pretty well on the Midnight Silver color. Anyone has experience in fixing blemish like this? Do I need to get any touchup paint, or some solvent like those seen on TV would work just as well?

Not unthinkable bro. Very thinkable actually. Never. Ever. Open the falcon wing doors inside a commercial garage. There are pipes and beams everywhere. Always do so when you’re outside the car and able to immediately abort as needed.

Correct whenever you are inside a building you should take extreme caution when operating the doors. Namely operate the doors from the outside to make sure there are no low beams and pipes hanging, which is very common in parking garages.

Picture is a bit blurry because it is hard to focus.
