Something to try on the corrugated roof:  rub a soft pencil on it, which will add a small amount of 'graphite shine'.  If you don't like the effect, it'll be easy to clean off with water or alcohol.

all the stacks and vents on the roof.   You need tar flashing.  White glue applied with toothpick and then very small pointed brush to apply black paint to simulate tar.  All adds greatly to the finished look.

Good choice keeping the cast metal shed roof. It's gorgeous with detail. Also a good job in getting the cast metal wood stairs to match the weathered wooden decking. That can be tough to get close, but you did it.
