It’s garbage. Replace it with Hardie.

Remove it from the house, box it up and bring to the Antiques Roadshow.

gray is the worst color to use. It will fade and so you cannot replace a few or it will show.

lot of people are spraying theirs over...but i do know you cannot use regular latex because of expansion/contraction between two will lead to cracking...or something like that...there is a paint for it now I believe.

What do you mean by ‘restore’ your siding? Is it dirty, have mold & mildew etc? If you just need to clean it up there are several good products that you can spray on.

its clean just lost the luster - seems dull vs when I installed in 1995 - it is in good shape but would like to bring back to look like it did when new - like you do with the back on your vehicle to bring it back to new

Renewing the look of UV damaged vinyl siding is going to be a regular job from here on out if it hasn't turned chalky yet. My Mother had a home in a retirement community and all the homes there had vinyl siding, and this is in Arizona. The UV rays kill vinyl here and the siding is totally shot in 12 years where it's exposed to the sun. It's decomposed and there is nothing you can do to it to bring it back.
