You could use a glossy type spray paint, and i might try to do it also, keep in mind that to get the exact same hue as your car is difficult because the paint on your car does change colors from the day it was made. It may not be a huge difference, but will effect how the paint matches even if you find a perfect one.

im sorry but im not in the mood for this B$ i just wanted to know what type of paint to use to make my moldings black again, how to touch up chipped paint and how to paint my bumpers to match if i wanted to
I'll give you a real answer...what I found was painting to match an old car is a bitch. Paint fades and sets into it's own and it nearly impossible to match again without completely repainting the whole car which is what I'm having to do. pay someone to hassle this crap
yeah people can do it, no doubt, but I doubt you can :P that's why I said pay someone to do it. I have a GREAT body man here in my town who is a friend of mine who is painting my whole car (back to black) for 2000 which includes materials. and he does fantastic work.
