And to add to it with logic. If the pieces were dyed plastic, they would be the same color all of the way through. I deal with dyed molded plastic on golf carts on a daily basis.

Just like your black mirrors. Dyed plastic. If you scratch your mirrors, it's still black underneath. And you CAN polish plastics like mirrors. Been there done that. Just gotta be careful. But now I'm getting off topic, as its obvious the pieces are not dye molded plastic.

This will NOT fix it, but will hide the shit out of it for sure. I've used this on parent's cars, cars right before I've traded em in off the lease, etc.

Damn they still make those!?
