    Iā€™m restoring my 1959 Around the World pin and have all new parts for the top of the playfield except for the GTB 25W pop bumper bodies. PBR is out of stock so I may have to use the originals. Overall they are in good shape, but are very yellowed. Has anyone had any luck bringing these back to white?

    You could always try the retrobrite procedure. Basically, industrial hydrogen peroxide and sunlight. Googling it will turn up lots of info.
