Faded plastic? answer is new plastic. Nothing can bring the color back. It fades deep within the plastic.
Red is horrible with the sun. My 05 500 turned pink after 2 years and minumal time in the sun. Then I was told that flouresent lights will fade plastic as well, especially red.
My dealer gave me some bang up plastic fenders to experiment with. They were practically new. I tried polishing compound and a foam wheel. Before the scratches came out, I burned the plastic. Tried rubbing compound, it worked but left it;s own scratches. I tried a sereis of plastic polishes, from 5 or so different makers, even 1200 & 1600 grit wet dry sand paper.
most everything I tried worked but not very well. I could never get it back to a new look.
this is what i have been using since; it hides scratches for a week to 10 days, it is a little greasy though, but it looks nice
