Exactly what I did when I backed the motorhome into a branch, so needed to fix an abrasion in the fancy paintwork. A small Lordco Auto parts store in Port Coquitlam BC was able to make me a spray can that was so accurate I couldn't find the repair when selling a couple of years later. Luckily I had a 1"x 6" piece of trim to take into the store for a match.
If that little store could do it, you should have no trouble.
