    Can someone recommend a good way to try this with large objects, like clear ramps?

    I just did this with some white posts out of the Stars that I'm trying to restore. I'm pretty happy with the results and this was only sitting out in the sun for about 3 1/2 hours.
    The two white plastics that sit in the back part of the play field are severely stained yellow and I'm terrified to try this because I don't want to get rid of the art.

    Will peroxide remove discoloration caused by incandescent heat/burn? -Especially in pop bumper caps.

    No. In that case, the plastic is burned, not yellowed by bromine in the plastic. Once it's burned, it's permanent.

    Just another recent project:

    This time I just used regular First Aid peroxide.
    (The restoration also included a new bezel and repairing lines on the screen).

    I'm always amazed at how well these old games come up.

    I had a couple of goes recently on some yellowed pinball parts but didn't had great success.What is the % strength is the First Aid peroxide and were you using this straight or in a mix with oxy? Do you use a UV light or just the sun, I had it outside for a couple of days but not sure where I need to improve my technique. Any help appreciated

    3% and sunlight. I'm surprised this one turned out as well as it did. It was on and off again overcast that day.
