The black color (and silver on the emblem) on the plastic part of the handle has faded. Im thinking paint (or spray) it gloss black to restore the original look (don't care about the silver though). What sort of paint and method should I use?

Nice racquets, I owned a pair of those. I wish I still had them.

mask off everything but what you want black then get some black gloss spraypaint designed for plastic and paint. If you want even better adhesion use like 800 grit sandpaper to rough up the plastic first.
