Stormie Lid Going Yellow


Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I haven't been here for a few years now but some time ago I bought ANH TK bucket from Mike (TK-4510). It has never trooped and has been in my display cabinet with little sunlight since I bought it but over the last few years it has yellowed noticeably.

Does anyone know what I can do to whiten it up again?

 

Thanks

I know that a lot of Troopers have had success with this, Dean:  https://trooperbay.com/trooperbay-armorwhite-plastic-whitening-gel

Google retrobrite, but the tl;dr of it is apply some high concentration hydrogen peroxide creme.  Wrap it in cling wrap, this stops it drying out.  Now leave in the sun for a few hours turning occasionally to ensure even exposure, seeing as you're in Australia use appropriate caution about how hot that sun actually is!  Rince thoroughly with water.

 

This should work but I've yet to try it my self, though I probably will need to by the end of the year.
