Colour fading

Hello all,

Thanks for all the feedback from my previous question. Here's a new 1. I have the '05 model (red) and the plastic parts are fading badly. Some suggestions have been to spray sislicone and leaving it to absorb, others have suggested a clear floor polish. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andreas

Andreas -

Some folks have reported good results with Son of A Gun. Others have reported success in color restoration by carefully working the plastics over with a hair dryer set on "high".
