    also, I'm not sure if you need direct sunlight for the h2o2 to work, UV happily passes through clouds.

    This is one of the greatest threads of all time
    Thank you.
    My G1 is nearing 100% so I want to have it look amazing.
    I have a couple of G1’s that I’d like to keep but they only have a little bit of yellowing.
    Through respect I’d rather show respect to the 30 + years of a toy than just replace it for 50’ish $.

    So yeah, thanks once again for the great detailed ideas.

    Is it me or is the red more vibrant too due to the crisp white?

    This is the most blatant rascist thread on this forum. The practice of white washing has gone too far. All in the name of removing yellowed G1 toys out of existence!

    Dumb question but do you dilute the peroxide or is it 100% peroxide in the jar?

    When I’ve done it in the past, I’ve used a ratio from about 1:1 H202 and distilled water to about 1:3. Both have worked fine.

    But I have no idea if this is the most appropriate. I kinda guessed.

    Just fixed my 1/55 Skull 1 Valkyrie thanks to this. It did dull the paint a little but overall I'm happy with the results. Mind you I did use 12% volume as I could not find a large amount of 6%.
