    Default Restoring old faded plastic switch housings - Any tips?

    I just picked up a '75 Honda ST90 I'm looking at restoring. Its pretty rough, and I don't want to replace anything, trying to keep it as original as possible. Anyone know any tricks for bringing back faded black plastic switch housings and faded red switches?

    I made a product that does this, I haven't marketed it yet... it comes out looking like new and won't re-oxidize, it's great for vinyl and rubber too. But I'm not parting with my recipe... If you PM me your address, I'll gladly send you some for free; if you post an honest review of it.

    I've had luck using a heat gun on the parts and come out looking brand new.

    Forever Black, Its actually a dye. And it lasts. Have used it on switches, speedo rings, anything plastic or rubber.

    I used less than a bottle of "Wipe New" to restor the plastic body panels of my Honda Element (I know, its a cage), the stuff works. I dont have much plastic on my bike, so cant say how it would clean old switches. It costs about $25 for a small bottle, which did a whole Element ( a SUV, 50% of it covered in plastic)
