Default Powder Coat Touch-Up

When drilling the VS hinge brackets on the rear spar the white powder coat was scuffed a bit by one of my C-clamps showing some bare metal. What should be used to recoat this material and prevent corrosion of the underlying steel?

Ask the company that powder coated your metal if the paint manufacturer has rattle can touchup paint for your color. Cardinal and LVP (and others) make touchup spray that works really well with their powder coats.
