Is there any way to bring back a 60's Satin Flame/Moire wrap that has been faded by sunlight? I've cleaned with "Scrubbing Bubbles" which lifted dust and dirt pretty well, but the Blue Moire is on the verge of a grayish-white finish. Any comments appreciated.
Thanks!

Kdg!

Unfortunately, the color has been bleached out by the sun. Just no way to get it back. Must have been exposed for a very long time!

I'm not doing this, but has anybody given any thought to applying some sort of very fine colored translucent paint?
The wavy-gravy of the of the wrap is still there, it has just lost its color. It might be a way to revive these wraps someday.
Probably not, but if we can send a man to the moon.....
