    My Amiga 500+ was looking like new when I got it. I used it occasionally but then it was stored for years boxed up under my bed. There's also a radiator right next to the long side of the bed. When I pulled the amiga out of storage for inspection and some games, it turned out that it has yellowed! I guess heat from the radiator helped speed up the process.

    Anyway, just another first hand proof that even things kept in the dark can go yellow
    My main rig is a 386DX-40

    Since i don't want paint my consoles i'm thinking about a vacuum machine to prevent the oxygen interaction. I know that isn't properly an "invisible" treatment but i would prefer it to spray the lacquer. Do you think it's a wasting of time?

    Time spent on an Amiga is never a waste of time. However if you vacuum seal it, how the hell do you use it?

    I never talked that i'm wasting time on my machines, i have part of them that i use everyday and their yellowing doesn't bother me. There is also a part of them that i expose in my collection and that i want to avoid (as much as i can) the yellowing.

    Ahh you mean some for use, some for your own private museum. I can understand that, I do a similar thing myself. But do you have the same problem as me: Do you occasionally remember the "moral message" embedded in Toy Story 2, and realise that you too are the villain of the picture?

    Hi
    I'm part way treating my Plastic 128D this weekend, I'm already worried about the process reverting.
    I'm thinking if it's a matter of treating/removing the bromine. would multiple treatment's eventually stop the reverse process
    would the bromine just run out ?
    I have some autoglym car polish with UV protection. would that help, without having to spray it.
