Chrome plastic trim touch up?

Recently acquired a new front grill assembly along with square headlights and headlight trim, one of the headlight trim pieces had the silver come off it in a quarter sized piece. Is there a good paint to use to touch this up?

Also, grabbed some wood grain panels for the interior and the silver around the edges of the trim has mostly worn away, what paint is good for that?

I have used Rustoleum "spray chrome" to touch up or repaint plated plastic pieces. Not quite the same as original but close. Clean well first and use some scotchbrite to give a little bite.
