Paint it. Unless it's that flimsy stuff that likes to bend all over the place. If it's rigid.... Paint it.

Had a car with that problem. I live in Florida so I know what you're going through. Every black piece of plastic down here turns gray after a few years. More like months

Paint it.

Use a 'Matte Black' or something like that. Maybe even a flat black.

Preparation is the key. Remove the pieces if you can, clean them up REALLY well to get that other goop off of it (if it isn't too late already) then prime it and paint it.


You can use a a spray can. It works.

I don't remember exactly what I used.... Plastikote(???).

It was so many years ago, I just don't remember. Any paint store should be able to bring you up to date.

If you can't remove the pieces you want to restore, be careful not to get over-spray on everything. Some neighbors have no sense of humor at all

TBT, Back to Black worked fairly well on the fenders, but on the LPG cover, I painted it. I had some left over plastic adhesion promoter and used Krylon plastic paint in a semi-gloss black. Only time will tell how long it holds up. My nearest neighbor is 1000 ft away, so no small claims court, but better not get any on the wife's stuff!!!
Thanks,
WW

I use the blow torch method.
Or a good heat gun. Melts the top layer just enough to turn it black.
Works very well.

Kenny Kustom - just checking to see if your recommendation was serious? Kinda hard to tell via written word. If so, I am impressed that you had the guts to try it. Any before/after photos????
