My experience with Retr0Brighting

I have several Atari 8 bit and Atari ST models all with some level of yellowing plastic cases.. So I decided to give the retr0Brite process a whirl… The idea is to use Salon Strength Hydrogen Peroxide to beach the plastic to a earlier color.. The problem I have where I live is a lack of sun… so I went for the UV light option… where people on youtube had reported improvement of colour in hours… it took me weeks.. But I did get the results I wanted…

When there was a glimpse of sunshine I did turn off the UV but we got hardly any..

But the results are worth it as seen next >

The only problem I had with my Atari 130xe is that the process also stripped the red colour from the logo badge.. still looks nice though…
