I saw some good results from someone who'd used engine degreaser on theirs.

Think the problem is that kind of plastic absorbs dirt and marks, once that happens not much can be done.

You can still buy black ones from sega which would look nicer.

I think they were about £75 (lower) and £55 (upper) last time I checked :-o

Then you've got the 18 fasteners to buy as well.. :roll:
