My Outback is on year 6 now. Its never lived in a garage so all my black plastic is light faded gray. I have used Back to black, 303 aero, etc. At least 6 different products and they work for like 2-3 months. If I wash regularly they last even shorter.

I broke down and bought 4 cans of Duplicolor black trim paint and 4 cans of Duplicolor prep adhere spray. I plan on painting all my cladding black in hopes that it will last a few years.

Any suggestions on prepping the cladding first. I was thinking about cleaning it with rubbing alcohol, sanding, then masking off the car and going in deep with the Duplicolor.

1. Sanding with fine grit
2. clean
3. Spray prep
4. Spray paint
5. Seal it ???????

I think there is a 'primer' out there, for plastics but, it's not available at places like autozone. More like auto paint places or maybe amazon?

I found some links in another thread, that might be useful...and linked the original thread, as well. Good luck!
