Reviving sunfaded side steps

i bought a pair of side steps from ebay for my jeep. granted they werent pristine, they are dirty and the brackets had some rust and the plastic was a nice sunfaded one color similar to most fender flares. so i washed them and dried them and sprayed them with Rustoleum clear urethane and they look damn nice now. makes my flares look like they need to be done now

Did the clear paint made it look darker?
