According to the dealer manual here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... temId=2697 Klein supplied proper touch up for their bikes. Document even includes instructions for mixing it !

Anyone ever seen or got hold of them. Trek in the UK deny all knowledge....

to my knowledge there are no old touch-up kits available anymore. the old paints and Gator in particular are almost impossible to match with the standard touch-up paints from the auto store but a talented and motivated airbrusher should be able to do it. it's just that for only a few paint chips it is not worth mixing the paint. those die-cast model (sp?) shops usually have a nice collection of paints in somewhat wilder colors. those paints are not as durable as car paints but with a clear coat last quite well.
