How do I touch in the matt Black Windscreen Suurround

My 2001 X 5 has lost a significamt amount of the matt??? ( did it start off as gloss ? ) black paint around the windscreen . here is a picture of the bottom part ( the Top is worse but is under the cover )
I'd say its aluminium ? so how best to touch it in not sure whether to aerosol or hand brush aerosol is going to need a lot of masking or a very small gun
Could it be plastikoted ? Main Thing is do I need to etch prime the base ?
Thanks
Boyd

Boyd, I will defer to others with more paint knowledge but what I have used over small surfaces with good distance results is a black sharpie marker. From a distance it blends nicely...up close you could probably noticed the touch up. Good luck.

best way is to remove it, sanding the oxidiced aereas and bring it to a powder coat shop.
while that is in prozess, you could bring also you windows to tinting.
2 shops done in one step.
disasamble are just srews, so if you dont have only left hands....

and yes, it is aluminium.
