I have some plastic parts over 30 years old... 1st part is the ciggie butt box.. prev owner put double sided tape on the top and after using thinner, I manage to remove all the adhesive.

 

2nd part is the has some sort of different shades as if it had some chemicals leaked on it... 

 

Anyways to make it nicer? I tried thinner, then tried some armor all.. nothing seem to work?

If armor all don't work you need to find those plastic paint but won't look so natural anymore.

 

Seen some youtube they use hot gun. Maybe can try....

okay so managed to clean this bit up... the secret is pigshair brush with soapy water... I guess any brush also can.

But didnt work on the bigger pieces, I think the only option is to spray
