One for the valeters-Muply/Berlingonoob
#1
The black plastic on one of my door mirrors has gone grey. This is the mounting/surround that connects to the door, not the coloured panel.

The nearside is perfectly black but the offside has faded. I've tried various "Back to black" type products, but even the best only lasts for a week or so before going grey again.

You can see it here:-

What is the best thing to do to get it back to the original black?

G-technics C4, not cheap, but it will restore ANY plastic back to factory look, and it lasts years.

Hot air gun? :S

Melt it back into its constituent parts and reshape it while moldable?!
