faded plastics

I bought my green 06 used and the plastic is faded out. Is there any way to restore or should I just paint it?
If I paint it then how well does the paint hold up to brush, branches, thorns and the average trail stuff.

ive never personally tried it but i know they make this plastic renew stuff. ive heard it does an ok job but not sure how long the "renewed" shines lasts.

It works pretty well, I've used it on old plastics with good results. If you have dirt that is just stuck in the tiny scratches and stuff you can use clorox and a soft brush but it stinks!

ive also heard if you have white plastics that get stained after a while you can use soft scrub to clean them. the only downside is you will lose the shine of the plastic due to the abrasion, so youll just have flat white

That plastic renew stuff works pretty good. I've used it on carbon fiber before. The only draw back is that it is hard to get a smooth even coat on large surfaces.
