Plastic roof rails fading

Hi,

I have a 2012 GC. Due to the Florida weather and the fact I have to park outside, the roof rails are starting to fade a bit. I probably should have put some protectant on them previously. It's not major damage but something that is starting to show. Any products out there to restore and then maintain? Thanks.

Mother's Back to Black. I used it on my TJ fender flares and it worked great. They went from gray back to black.

http://www.amazon.com/303-Products-3...=aerospace+303 Expensive, but definitively worth it. It also leaves my powdercoated rims looking like new.

Aerospace 303 is what I have been using 3 to 4 times a year on all black mouldings and 2 years in and all the black trim looks better than new.

Good stuff. Have used it for years on the hulls of my fiberglass and/or Kevlar canoes to protect against sun exposure.
