Forget about wiping something on to get the color back. Go to walmart and get a couple of cans of Krylon Fusion spray paint. Clean your flares and what have you "EXTREMELY WELL" with like acetone or something to get the oils and previously applied armor-all, whatever completely off, lightly sand to ruff-up the surface and paint the suckers. The fusion paint is made for plastics and such. I did it to my flares, side steps and the mirror trim on the door. It made all the difference in the world. Also try a search on this forum on flares or fading flares, there was a lot of talk about this same thing, that's where I got the info to paint mine.
