Unhappy Engine casing paint

Has anyone painted their alternator or clutch casings ???
I have a 1997 748 and the paint on the casings is flaking. The colour is the standard grey/green. Has anyone found paint of the right colour ?

You need to get them aqua/sand blasted down to base the etch prime them. Then paint the colour of your choice.

My main cases on the race bike after blasting and etching are painted with rattle can wheel silver, they still look good.
