    Anybody able to recommend a product for touching up the "chrome" on the dash? I'm thinking silver paint maybe, but don't think it will look right. How about that chrome paint in a rattle can? If can find something that would look OK, seems like while have the parts all of it would be ez to dab on a little bit to cover nicks. I've used Testor model paint markers before with good results, but never silver, just black, white, red.

    +1 on the Testor's paint markers - obviously the silver ones are not the same a chrome, but will look fine for a touch up

    IMO..if you have only to touch up a few pin head paint inperfections , use a chrome touch up paint , like testors.

    If there are genereous areas or lines missing. Probally would look better uniformly all repainted the same shade to match. Do it all to match.

    The brite aluminum spray looks good, Testers... MODEL MASTER SPRAY CAN, ALot of fine work taping though.

    Same one ^ I picked up. Lotsa good reviews on that pen. Seems to be the best option.

    Available at almost any Arts and Crafts store.
