Fixing peeling paint on mirrors of 1997 accord

I have a 97 accord with peeling paint on the mirrors.
It would be difficult to use a small bottle of touchup paint to repair
this. Any techniques/tips to repair this properly?
Thanks

Personally that's what I would do - and if you're real cheap semi-gloss
black doesn't look bad with any color body.
