Silver handlebar powder coat repair?

Hello all, I installed a set of 1” handlebar risers on my Bobber yesterday and despite laying a towel down on the tank and triple tree, I managed to put a couple scratches on the the bars. Mine are the silver powder coated (I think) type. Does anyone have a suggestion for repairing my oafish work? The bike just got out of 500 mile service, so I’d like to keep it looking pristine as long as possible. TIA

I think they are bead blasted, not painted. I could, probably am wrong.

The best repair is to paint them black. It looks much better. 😀
