sun-dried plastic

I'm finishing up a 79 El Camino for my son, and I'd like to make the interior a bit nicer without investing a great deal in it, for the time being. The plastic trim has been damaged by the sun - you can gouge it with a fingernail.

Rather than replace the trim at this time, I was curious if there's a way to coat and harden the pieces - fiberglass resin, perhaps. Then sand them smooth and paint them nicely. I'm not looking for a long term solution - just something to make it look nicer until he's out of high school.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
