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.

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

shit the fact you have a silver car I think would make it even harded. matching lighter colors like that is even tougher. it's easier with darks like black and blue

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.

If you want to make your black trim black again, try "Forever Black" I used it and it works great. You can find it on Bavarian Autosport. (about $12)

Or you can go the extreme cheap way, and just use shoe polish.
