Just take the grills off n prep them then paint them gloos black or colour coded if you wish - finish with nice clear coat..
otherwise just use auto glym plastic repairer, wont last nealry as long tho!

Using clearcoat maybe more work, however I owned the car for 3 years after and it still looked great.

Chunks dunno mate. My sals on the door frame (the harder plastic) they had white specks i used a bit to clean that um worked really good.

I found that baby oil works good on the interior door handles and dash when it goes all crappy and crusty like, i did it last year and its still looking darn good.
