Painting/Renovation of K reg Mk1 Espace body panels


My first post here. I have just taken on a 236000 mile, mk 1 Espace from a friend at work. He says I have to make the 1/4 million mark with it. Amongst many other things, its' originally red body panels have lost their varnish & are now the colour & texture of house bricks. What is the best way to renovate/restore the colour ? are their any known adverse reactions between available car paints & the "plastic" body panels ?
