$3.50 roll of a Chrome Brite metallic tape did the job nicely. Would have been better if the tape were 5" wide instead of 3" (to avoid a seam), but it looks a lot better than scraped white plastic showing through.

It has a couple of small scratches that probably no one else would notice but they bug the heck out of me. After searching on line I found that ColoRite had my paint, Y170M Cyber Gold Metallic, $15 for a touch up tube. I hadn't ordered it yet and was glad I didn't, was in Advanced Auto today and discovered they had Dupli-Color HA 00983 Naples Gold Metallic YR524M for half the price and it appears to be an exact match!

Thanks for the tip. I bought some today and have applied it to a number of scratches and scrapes. It looks better than before, but it's not a perfect match to the original paint. It looks like more of a match for our gold Honda Odyssey than my 2002 Reflex. I don't know if that's just the nature of touch-up paint or if the Naples Gold isn't quite the same as Cyber Gold. Having said that, it still covers up the scratches, so it was worth the $7.50.
