Plastic Cowl Thing

Anybody have any tips/tricks to bring the black plastic cowl thing between the hood and windshield back to the factory black color?

Mine is a little faded and just curious if it is possible to make it like new again??

it's easy to remove. take it off and repaint it with quality black glossy paint. Or some other type of plastic refinish.

Turtle wax makes a trim restorer call back to black. Apply it in the sun and it will last about 2-3 months. I wouldn't paint it glossy black. It would look awful. If you do paint it, I would prolly do matte or semi gloss.

I used a Mothers product also called Back to Black. Worked great, just needs some patience and diligence to get it to look good as it can get kinda streaky if you don't evenly apply it. Also be careful with the slickness of this stuff when it's on there, in my brilliance I decided to use it on the steps of my tube bars and when I climbed up it was like stepping on black ice, damn near crashed and burned! Same thing with the back bumper, looked great but is slick as hell.

I used Back to Black on mine, looked good at first but didnt last long. I'm painting next time. I'd use a plastic paint in a matte or semi gloss.

more to come hopefully soon

I'VE tried all of those " back to black" sprays ,creams ,and what nots. none work for an extended period of time in my experience. there are many many painted plastic parts ,,, mirror caps, door handles ect ect. i thing if you prep it properly and use a good for plastic paint it should work pretty good...... im thinking of doing this my self....i would like to do the bumper pars also...
