    Hi friends and thanks for taking the time to look at my post. I have a 2009 piaggio typhoon that’s been stored outside for some time. I have decided to give it a bit of a spruce up. Powder coated frame etc. However all the black plastics have faded to various shades of grey. What’s the best way to restore them to their original black? Should I spray them or use something like back to black (if so can anyone recommend a good make?)

    If your talking about unpainted plastic then a Hot air gun! It brings the oils in the plastics to surface again, makes them look good as new and it lasts years
