Ant coloring treatment for bumper covers?

My bumpers and perimeter plastic are very faded, anyone have a way to remedy that?

"Any" in title, I am not looking for an ant colored coating.

Mask off and repaint. Or "Mothers back to black" will work temporarily.

I just painted all of my plastic on my WJ. I used Krylon Fusion. It works very well and cane highly recommended from others on this site.
PSA - It would be nice if people made an attempt while typing to discuss their problems or opinions instead of one long sentence with no punctuation. Maybe I'm cynical, but that really pisses me off. Rant over.

I used the "as seen on tv" product called wipe new on my wk laredo and it actually worked pretty good .way better then i thought it would anyways. $19.00 at wally world and its been 2 months and quite a few car washes so far . I drive 6 miles of gravel every day and it still looks good .

That stuff right there works awesome on black plastic parts. It's made for bedliners ofcourse, but i've used it on several plastic pieces and it has lasted much longer than any other 'rejuvinating' type product i've used. It does have dye in it and tends to make a mess.
