Chipped paint - black accent of door (Lounge)

Hello everyone,

I have a Lounge in Bossa Nova White, and the paint that accents the windows is a gloss black. There's a chip in the black paint at the side of the window of the car door, and I'd like to treat/repaint it, but I'm not sure how best to go about it. Is there any specific process you'd recommend, please? I don't know if there's a particular paint type or colour that I should use as it's the accent and not the main colour e.g. whether it's a case of using generic black car spray paint (with primer), or best to get a 'black' Fiat chip and scratch kit.

Any advice gratefully received!

Thanks,

Lupy

Hello! Yes, it's the trim around the window, just where the edge of the door closes. Thanks

Try using black touch up paint.

Thanks, I guess I'll have a go at filling the chips and using a generic black paint if there's nothing more appropriate / glossy to match the existing finish.
