Does anyone have tried it? I think when the plastic got hot it go back to original color black but what if it is back to normal temperature will it be still black? Thanks.

i have done this to my jeep you can't let it get to hot and not point it at the paint or it might bubble but it hard to explain who it works it seems like the sun bleached plastic just blends in with the rest and makes it less apparent

ha I guess he is just cooking the plastic until it is charcoal. Never seen this before.

Some long-lasting tire shine works great for me. Comes out of an aerosol can, called more shine. Lasts a long time keeps it all nice and black.

Black magic is good too
