    Just curious if there was a way to bring back faded parts, I don't know what these are called. As you can see they are very faded. 1497355514752-579287463.jpg 1497355514752-579287463.jpg

    There's a product at Canadian Tire called made by Mothers, called Back to Black. I've used it with great results on other applications. There are other similar products available online. Black Wow is another. They are temporary, and will require future applications. Good luck.

    I have heard you can try to polish the oxidation with the stuff used to de-cloud headlights on cars. I have not done this myself however.

    a can of black paint usually works pretty good.

    Just to clarify it's not the hand guards I'm talking about, it's the housing of the switches
