Lightly sand them, wipe with "wax & grease remover", spray plastic primer, matt black paint, then clear gloss... will come up like new.

I didnt even use plastic primer, just normal primer and its still looking good after 5 months.........

You can try with the rubber sprays, but what youll find is that the hardened coating on the rubber has turned to s**t and fallen off so the only way is to buy new ones or paint over. Heres how mine turned out..

No, just mask up everything, depending on how paranoid you are, cover some of the bonnet, boot and roof to protect from overspray.
