On the Monaco they're black, not in bad shape but could be better.  Anyone have an idea of what paint could be used to bring them back to life?

I think you could send them to Just Dashes and they can recover them so they look new..

You can get spray plastic paint that used car re-conditioner guys use,
you'll need a detail gun and compressor or use a Pre-Val. Go to your
local auto paint jobber and ask them, there are different product names,
most auto paint mfr's make it.  They can match about anything, but
black is easy! It works on hard plastic, dashes and viny
upholstery.  If the plastic is disintegrating, that would be more
difficult, maybe Bawb knows how to fix that problem.

Thanks guys. 
 
It's odd to me but these things are clearly a mix.  Kick panels are plastic.  But the interior sail panels are fiberglass.  Hope I can use one product for both..

Auto Paint supply.  You can look them up on line too.  It's a dye that soaks in.  Not a paint.

So I assume it's the SEM landau black?  The stock stuff doesn't look glossy, nor does it look necessarily flat, so I'm left wondering.

SEM makes a Bumper Coater spray that works well also.....many different colors in the black/ grey range....I just used their Flexible Bumper spray and it was a perfect satin black plus flexible too

Yes, youse guys are right, SEM is what my local jobber carries, I
couldn't remember the name. And yes, I guess it's called dye, not
paint, but essentially it's paint ie: you spray it on and it covers up
the defects.... I guess it soaks in as Steve said, works pretty good.

in reality it's billed as an "elastomeric coating"....not a dye or paint
