    If it is merely faded, the rub rail appearance may be improved by applying controlled heat using an electric heat gun (not a flame torch).

    Other techniques involve rubbing the surface with fine steel wool, and using automotive bumper and exterior plastic restoration products.

    Restoring rub rails and sponsons

    Grab Bar Repair

    Polaris Paint Restoration

    Straying a bit off course, but I thought it's...

    Go onto http://www.x-h2o.com/ and post up, pretty much all the stand up guys turf their rails and they always look pretty good, I haven't heard many complaints about it busting loose, but I don't know what/how they stick it to the rails.
