Icon5 Restore Fender and Lower Bumper Vinyl

Interested in restoring the vinyl around all four fenders and vinyl on lower front bumper. My 01 Ranger needs a little sprucing up. Cleaning and restore original to color, make it look like new again. Please recommend any products that are helpful.

Use a heat gun if you want the original color. otherwise, krylon fusion for plastic spray can in satin black

um.. its pretty much a high powered hair dryer. point it at the fender flare and follow its shape but don't stay in 1 spot for too long or it'll melt

Will the heat alone return color to original? If that doesn't work spray semi black krylon fusion paint. Thanks

The heat brings the pigment to the top.. restoring the color essentially. Krylon fusion works better in my opinion.. I've done both.
