Default Windshield wiper restore

I have an 05 sti and I have finally got the exterior looking flawless except for my windshield wipers. The bigger part at the bottom has brown spots and the smaller arm is almost silver its so faded. I've tried a couple of things but nothing will make it look newish again. Before I just buy a new assembly is their anything else I can do, maybe back to black? Thanks

The paint has faded off, you can probably sand it down and just repaint it depending on how bad it is

you can take them off and paint them with some flat/matte black.

i use the Krylon Camo flat black paint or whatever the durable spray paint to restore the wipers after using aircraft paint removal then sanding it down to make a better adhesion for the paint. it comes out pretty good.
