Has anyone touched up parts of the original aluminium areas of the engine bay, i've seen a few engine enamel paints in aluminium colour on halfrauds and amazon.

I have areas which have started to peel and look really untidy, especially in the corners of the front timing chain cover.

Those parts are not painted but "raw" aluminium. What you are seeing is corrosion of said aluminium parts.

Most painted parts you see on built cars are powder coated when off the engine as it's being reassembled.

Your other option is elbow grease and a wire brush. Given how hard it is to access all surfaces of these parts I wouldn't bother. It might just end up looking a whole lot worse.
