Paint touch up questions

Need to do a few spots of touch up on my 87, the biggest is a spot about 2 by 6 on the door, where the paint pulled off while removing the old trim.

I would like to mask it off, and just repaint that area. There are only about 4-5 spots on the whole truck that is down to primer. Truck is and 87 with what I believe is mostly the original 5118 black paint.

Had they went to BC/CC paint yet? Since Im unsure of what type of paint is used, what prep work / materials would you recommend?

Truck has been well taken care of over the years so except for the few mentioned spots, I feel a full repaint is not needed.

Im no body man, just a DIYer, but have painted a few vehicles, though the last was about 20 years ago.

Thanks for any advice offered

Re: Paint touch up questions

I'm no painter either but if its original paint and black it may be hard to match the old paint doing small spots like that....

I guess it just won’t have to match as I’m not doing a full repaint for less 30 square inches of chips total.

Re: Paint touch up questions

If you want it done so nobody can tell, don't even try. Just take it to a couple shops and see what they tell you. There's some magicians out there that pull it off but won't touch if you've messed with it.
