Does anyone have a good brand/source for paint/technique to replicate factory early Stern Coin door/cabinet entry trim?

I pirated this Trident pic off of google images, but most of my original non molested Stern doors have similar look as this one, it's a semi textured darker silver with potentially what looks like clear coat, or it was just extremely glossy thick paint...

I have several other Sterns which I think have had the doors redone at some point in the past, which are just a fairly flat silver paint.

Im looking to replicate this original look such as this trident the best I can on a few restorations that I'm working on. Will be bead blasting the doors & legs down to bare metal.... but before I go & buy bunch of stuff to test paint, just wondering if anyone has already done the leg work on this?

I use the Rustoleum Hammered Paint (I believe its the Silver) and get a decent result.

Best easy way to replicate it at home I have found.

Used it for the legs on Nine Ball as well (Original on left, "new" on right). Picture of door was before I added the "Press Start" button.

That's the paint I use for Stern doors too. Did one for a Galaxy a while back and it turned out great.

The two decals you'll need are available.
