Interior Detailing

I'm in the process of buying an 00 Boxster S, triple black. It has a silver-like trim and I've noticed it seems to be coming off or is scratched off in a few spots: seat back, door pocket cover, etc.

Is there a touchup paint or some other technique to cover up the black?

Thanks,

Art

I don't think the touch up route will work. You'll need to remove and respray.
I might go one of two ways. Tower Paint (if they are still in business) will give you a VIN# color matched can of spray paint for about $10. You'll have to buy a can of clear coat. Or maybe you can use the Wurth paint kit which is the same silver as your wheels. If the parts are plastic you may need a plastic adhesion promoter which you might be able to find at Autozone or a body shop supply store.
Before you do any of this you will need to thoroughly clean the surfaces using alcohol or paint thinner.

There's also a guy on Ebay does this type of stuff. I think his user name is asimplechef or something. Maybe you can remove the parts and send them to him for painting. He only does silver for some strange reason.

here's a link to the Wurth Kit being used to repairs wheels scuffs.

+1 asimplechef's products are high quality and look OEM when installed.

I'm in no way affiliated with asimplechef but I have to agree with Blinkwatt. I bought several products from Asimplechef before it all were high quality with the OEM look.
