anyone have a solution to fading bumper rubers(for want of a better name).as they age they change to pink,fading from sun etc i guess.
can anything be done to help return to original red colour.
eg..coloured polish etc,or can you replace them?

I have the same problem with the red fading to pink on my front bumper, bonnet vents and rear spoiler.
While I can restore it to a certain degree with a good polish (I use Zymol) the acrylic paint eventually fades again.
I was advised by a spray painter the only permanant solution is to repaint the components with 2-pac enamel and then apply clear over the top.
