Aerospace 303 Protectant is great to rejuvenate faded plastics. It's more of an upkeep sort of thing than an outright solution but if you do it every week or two for a couple of months it'll hold that deep black for quite a while. On my Miatas and have used it on my door seals, dashboard, convertible top, etc. I think they've expanded their product line a bit now but I haven't checked in years.

I also have shin etsu grease which works wonders on window tracks and the sort. I'd probably suggest that for heavy duty weather seal treatment. That shit is amazing.
Thanks so much for all the great advice on products!

Gloss, I also did all of the lower plastic ascents up front too. The grill is already gloss.
Very true. I've wondered why they made the grille gloss from the factory. I personally think a nice matte would've looked better. I still love it though. How the paint holding up? How many coats did you apply and did you use a primer or clear coat?

The coating is very durable, no issues to report. Water rolls and wipes off easy, biggest impact is no water or wax stains. No primer, just cleaned surface with thinner and laid ~3-4 coats.

What exact Shin Etsu product are you all using?

It is kinda like saying "I use Dow Corning grease"...

Shin Etsu makes a boatload of different products just like Dow Corning, which schmooo is the right schmooo?
