Bottom Valiance Fading

Well my Used to be black Plastic Bottom Valiance (Its Textured Not Smooth) is fading and looks funny, kinda gray with lighter stripes and stuff on it... Now if I take it off clean it up what kind of paint shall i use to turn it black again.

Should i use the krylon fusion

Or is there some kind of stain to turn it black again

Flat or Gloss

Or should i just leave it like it is

I have used both Duplicolor Trim Paint and Krylon Fusion on my plastics and both work well, but if I had to chose I would say go with the Krylon.

Flat or gloss is all personal choice, Look up Jewler54's build thread, he just painted his valence and flares with Krylon in a Satin finish I believe, and it looks great.

You might use some of that "Back to Black" cleaner. It works great on faded plastic parts.
