Mine are looking a bit faded, with white patches (photo attached, hopefully)

Thanks,

the heat gun trick works for me as do it once and takes years for the plastics to fade back again, there is two sides to all this ie new plastic that are not damaged by age and sun light and damaged old plastics that wont come back for very long by only putting a wet effect on them, normally takes a good 5 years or more for the black plastics to fade and go milky grey colours those are the ones that hot air gun have the best effect on and it lasts a few years then repeat it again,,
