Default Yamaha G16e - refurbish plastic bumper covers

My Yamaha G16e has plastic bumper covers. They are severely weathered. The black has faded. I am looking for a treatment, including paint that will restore the black color. Any successful treatments? I have read of vinyl spray paint and wonder it there is a paint or stain that will re-finish these areas.

There are spray paints, sold at most auto parts stores, that are intended for bumper covers and other plastic trim. They will still fade with exposure, but can be periodically repainted. Front bumper is easy to mask around and spray it in place on the cart. Rear bumper can be a little more difficult if you're working around a rear seat frame and all, but it can still be done. Just make sure it's a paint intended for plastics.

I used this and it did a good job.
I used a couple of light coatings and it came out well.
Didn't want that thick rough look and the light coats gave a light pebble finish.
