In some threads that I have read they talk about a product called back to black. In wonder if there is black pigment in it or if it uses a wetting effect. Maybe someone can comment in it.

Back to black uses wetting to produce the desired effect.

I can tell you this, Fusion from Krylon is good... BUT... It will still flake off if the part you painted with it flexes enough. Just food for thought.

Duplicolor makes numerous OEM type finishes. Everything from wheel colors to trim and bumper cladding colors. Either go to your locat automotive paint store or one of the major parts stores and you should be able to find something that works just fine.

use a heat gun, heat it up until it turns back to the color - This is what some guys do with there black fenders when they oxidize - it works
