Which paint to use in local touch-up in engine bay


I need to do some local touch up on the black paint in the engine bay due to chip or small rust area (like in the battery tray area). I'm installing a new battery tray to fit my larger Autolite 24F-A battery. The paint in the engine bay isn't shinny, more like semi-gloss

I don't really want to spray, thinking to use a brush for these small areas over a touched-up primer.

Which paint and color do you recommend. If you don't brush it, what do you use?
