If you need to touch up a part that has a silver painted edge, such as a shifter tunnel from a '73 (which is what I did this on), for example, try this, if space/and or surface permits: find a metal ferrule or spacer about 1/2" long, and insert a bolt through its hole with a nut on the end. Make sure it rolls freely. Spray some silver chrome paint on a piece of cardboard, roll the ferrule/spacer over the paint, making sure the paint is not too heavy on the ferrule/spacer, and then roll it on the part you need to outline. I did a shifter tunnel for a '73, and the area with the silver trim was worn of paint. This area is raised, so this method worked great. It looks like a factory finish, and is uniform. If you tried a brush to do this, it will not be as uniform of a finish. Keep in mind you may need several coats.
