    Rhino coating plastic trim pieces on FZR/FZS?

    My removable trim pieces are pretty badly sun faded. Has anyone tried rhino coating them? I thought this might be a neat idea. I have a few pics of the pieces below. Feel free to chime in if you've used a particular paint or viable alternative. Click image for larger version.

    Mine were pretty faded and I ordered replacement pieces that are black and OEM and used a 2013 parts listing. Do a search under replacing gunwhales on the forum.

    In the offroad world having bed liners like Line-x on plastic has been hit or miss. Does not always stick that well to plastic. And biggest issue I would have is the texture would suck to rub against. Also unless you get something like the line-x premium with UV stabilizer it will fad as well.

    I've used some trim paint before on car trim, and it has worked well. It is a rubberized black paint that sticks to plastic or metal. I think it was made by Duplicolor, and I got it at an auto parts store. I used it on the trim around the windows when they faded, and it was still good when I sold the car about 2 years after painting them.

    trick with the plasti dip is thin, multiple layers. make sure its not too hot either. i have successfully stuck it to chrome, plastic, and painted surfaces.

    I used armor-all protectant that you can spray on. & peel off. It comes in black. Worked fantastic on the faded plastics on my skis

    I'm disappointed with the quality of the black plastic pieces Yamaha used on my 2013 FZR. Spill a tiny bit of fuel on them and they're ruined! Simple solution is to be more careful when adding fuel, but shit happens. Mine have streaked and faded terribly. I tried cleaning them and a little tire shine worked the best, but up close you can still notice the streaks and fading in the plastic.

    I just use a heat gun to recolor mine
