paint peeling around front and rear bumper covers

does anyone have any good ideas on how to spot paint the trim around the car that peels and looks yellow. we all know about this. the rest of the car looks good, so a total paint job is not an option for me now. I thought about get the paint to match a carefully brushing in out where its yellow. is that cheesy or not. what do you guys think.

if you go to a ford dealership they may have some paint mixed up in the paintshop(provided they have a bodyshop) they may give you a touch up bottle...... or you may consider getting the bumpers repainted and buffing the rest of the car to match the fresh paint..... with it being red (one of the most expensive colors along with blue) I would say it should be in the 300-350 range.

paint all of that body trim black. the black trim looks good against red paint. easy fix
just sand it well, tape it off, prime and spray it with some satin black. i think i'm going to do this to mine when i get a garage in a month or so.

i have no mustang. so don't listen to anything i say.

no dont brush anything on a car.....brushes are for houses and pictures.....spray it or find someone who can airbrush not even half way decent and have them touch it up... OR...last time I was at autozone in the US they had little rattle cans of touch up paint thats what I would do and probably your easiest and cheapest bet...and best looking for the money

he's picturing the trim around the car is black. like it is on many mustangs. some are painted to match, some are black. but underneath, all that trim is butt ugly yellow

i have no mustang. so don't listen to anything i say.
