Faded Fairing

The fairing on my bike is seriously faded from the sun. It's not the painted part, but the black part up by the windshield. Is there anything on the market that will put the life back into it? I've tried armor all, and it looks good for a day or two, but then goes right back to looking like crap. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You guys are a big help, but I'm looking for something that matches the color a little closer.

I also use this, its thicker than the btb, you have to spray it on a rag then wipe it on to get an even coat, I'm not sure which is a better product.
