I have discovered one, and only one long term solution to this problem.
After trying many different solvents, cleaners and abrasives with limited success, I tried a rather radical approach. Using a heat gun, I carefully applied heat to the surface of a discarded, sticky blue fender until the plastic actually melted slightly and turned glossy. After cooling, the fender felt, though didn't look like new.
That seemed to do the trick. Today, months later, the fender is not sticky. The surface of the plastic seems to have been restored to it's original consistency.
