The yellowing is caused by the intumescent in the surface which is a fire retardent. To remove the yellow you actually abrade the surface and break its seal. The solution is short term and will go yellow again in time. It also makes the plastic brittle, may not be successful and cause marking of the case. It will also attack other materials. To me it ruins the surface on the plastic. I have 123 Amigas and not one has been tampered with. What is more important to me is that as a collector I would never buy an Amiga that had its surface intumescent removed. I expect old computers to go yellow. Removing its surface coating reduces its durability. I just don't care about the yellowing, cus I don't see it.

Just saying. Sad that these ideas are being promoted as some kind of refurbishment when in fact it is anything but.
