Mercury paint touch up

I have a 2004 Mercury, I'd like to touch up some of the paintwork, mainly where it's worn on the bottom of the skeg.

Anyone have any tips or advice to offer?

Apart from using etch primer, I was going to approach in the usual way - clean thoroughly, mask off area, apply primer, apply top coat, flat back with fine wet and dry etc.

cant seem to find much in the way of advice or things to watch out for. It's a winter job so not rushing into it.

I did the skeg on mine by sanding with 1000 wet&dry used wet then dried it off & 3 coats of black from an aerosol I'd got knocking about.
Sand key onto original paint as a blend area & use a piece of card to reduce overspray unless you want to backtape.
That was 3 years ago & its fine.
