Default Front Fender Liner Outer Edge Behind Tire Turning Grey

Have a CMG 10 ZR1 with 48K on the clock. The outer part of the front fender liner behind the tire that faces out has slowly turned like a silver grey. I have tried all kinds of plastic restorers and none have even touched it. Im contemplating cleaning then painting them flat black. That is the only part of all the fender liners that has turned grey. They look like they are replaceable but not there yet. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what is the fix.

Yeah my '10 has done it as well. I imagine when I replace them I will ceramic coat them to hopefully have some UV protection.

I just replaced them front and back. I think all four pieces were less than $400. The ones in front of the rear tires that connect to the lower carbon pieces however are dam near the same price as all four of the big ones since they are ZR1 specific. Got them all from my local dealership couldn't really find them online. I had them all done in just over an hour very easy DIY project.

Ive been using SOLUTION Dye to bring back the Black to the misc plastic pieces on my 2012
Grand Sport...........I did replace the 20K mile FLARE pcs as Ive shown above as mine had ALOT
of Rock Chip Damage.
I'm kinda dissappointed with the quality of the new GM replacements....so if your "picky" I suggest
you communicate your expectations with your supplier when you order
