I think its just faded. Colors gone and not comin back. On the very very off chance that its just oxidized, then buff it with some compound. But im pretty sure its faded. Needs new paint.

My friend and I wet sanded and compounded the headlights, in the proceeds we copping the one body line in front of the headlights and got a vibrant orange that came through, hope that is a good sign

If sanding brought back some color, than use rubbing compound. Buff it in nice to.get rid of.the ashy white oxidized clearcoat. But be careful, cuz its only getting thinner.
