You may want to try Forever Black, I've heard good things about it and I'm gonna be ordering some and trying it out on my car soon. Its a dye that supposively doesn't stay on other parts of your car but the plastic. It seems easier then respraying everything. Maybe that may help.

There's another product "Black again" that you SHOULDN'T use if you're really close to repainting your vinyl.

It's a clear liquid (so it's definitely not adding color) that works "okay" on plastic/vinyl and gets them darker/shinier but doesn't seem to last that long and needs to applied regularly (as the instructions state).

I bought a bottle and have been using it regularly as a treament on my black trim and tires, too. It gives a nice sheen but if your material is oxidized badly it won't do anything. If your trim is in fairly good shape it seems to work.

I will try Forever Black next time for treating the more oxidized areas.
