Plastic Door trim

Hey guys how to restore the black color of the trims?
I don t need to shine it, i just need that black original color to appear
Again from its origine and clear itself, is there any product that can make its color appear again? It s black matt and not shiny black.

The black pillars/trim are painted and clear coated. To restore the finish, compound and polish them like any other painted body panel.

Along the same lines, what product is good to use on the windshield mouldings to help prevent UV damage discoloration? I had the rear seal replaced 3 years ago and it's already starting to discolor.

Plastic, Engine, Rubber, Leather

"PERL by CarPro is a concentrated versatile water-based, protective coating for plastics, rubber, and leather that offers tremendous UV protection. PERL is a water based dilute to suit product, covering a large array of tasking within car care. It can be used to restores the like-new appearance of hard exterior plastic surfaces and keeps them looking good with strong UV and hydrophobic protection. The sun can be damaging on flexible materials, like rubber, plastic, and leather. Gradually & over the course of time they fade & become brittle and cracked. PERL is changing the rules. PERL provides excellent protection and lasts up to three months"
