Default Black trim turning white

I just purchased a garage kept 2001 C5. When I got it home I noticed that there were 2 areas where the black trim were turning white.

1) area behind the gas peddle
2) the corners of the trim piece that is under the convertible top.

Any ideas how I can blacken this up ??

Thanks JOE

Clean and restore the trim. Really any trim restorer will work. I use VLR or carpro perl.

Solution Finish is the best that I have used. I used it on my Element and the panels came out beautiful. Gotta be careful because it will stain your clothes.
