Has anyone tried refinishing the rough black plastic panels or fender? Did it turn out well or is replacement a better option?

If someone's found a trick for making them easier to keep clean, I'm all ears, the pain of cleaning them is half the reason I want to refinish.

Just painted the black front fender on 2013 F4RR in same matt pearl white - worked just great.

The cheap black plastic shit has always been a PIA to clean for me. Replacing all of it with CF is the first thing on my list.

Black plastic is easy to clean with a wet rag and water. No special attention required. Paint requires care. If you are using a cleaner with an oily substrate it will leave a residue which attracts dirt and dust.

I took all the panels off and washed them completely, but they always seem to retain dirt somewhere on them. Maybe I should give them a good spray with Teflon :)

This might sound strange but Mr Sheen with a soft cloth after washing with water works well.:)

Pledge for furniture will work well with making them easy to clean. It will require re-application every other wash or so.

Any reasoning on not finishing the ignition surround? The parts turned out well for you, I'll have to look into it, see what the shops want for clearcoating. Thanks.
