Paddle: Refinishing Carbon Paddle

Hello,

I have a carbon wing paddle that I use a lot and it is starting to get really faded. It only has light scratches (no deep gouges). I'm guessing if I don't do something the UV will continue to break down the carbon and become a problem. What is the best way to restore the paddle? I looked around online and saw mostly people restoring car parts using either just wet sanding or clear-coat spraypaint. I assume there must be a better way.

Thanks!
