Restoring Faded Interior Door Panels?

I have a Yellow 2000 Wrangler with Gray (Agate?) interior panels on full doors. The panels are badly faded and I'd like to get them looking better.

Not sure if I should try a heat gun, Mother's Back to Black that works on fenders and trim - will this work on the interior plastic as well? Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Thanks!

heatgun will get them back looking new. Just don't hold it in one spot for too long.

Well if you want to go crazy there is no reason the entire panel could not be covered.

I sprayed a set of half door interior panels. A can of adhesion promoter and a can of interior color paint. Looked good as new.

Rub peanut butter on any plastics...some vinyl as well and it helps bring back the look. Works on fender flairs too.
