Default ExteriorCcosmetic Problems (paint and trim)

I have a 93 sse. Recently i noticed fading paint spots on the trunk and spoiler. Also the paint has almost completely fallen off the rear passenger door handle. On top of these, the gold trim that lines the outside of the car is falling off in some spots. Should i take the rest off and use goo gone or what. And what do i do about the paint probles?
Any and all help is wanted/needed because i want to sell the car and fix these before i do so.
thanks

i've got the same problems but the fading is on the rear driver and passenger side quarters and trunk lid, and the front passenger side door handle.

Your going to need a repaint. Gm had some problems with their primers on some of their vehicles. Nothing is going to hide it, take it away. Sorry to say, REPAINT TIME.

The fading paint, you're most likely SOL (repaint as stated previously). But the trim, we've got a member or two (or more) that have had nice results by painting it black. Aviator ordered some new trim for his car. Don't remember it costing much, and it was just peel and stick...

Buy the adhesive and glue it back on. This adhesive is awesome stuff.
