It is true it will yellow back in time, but i've heard if you put a sealer on it, it prevents it. Oxygen is the main component that makes it yellow, heat and uv can also yellow as well.

So buying a non-plastic cab doesn't guarantee you won't see yellowing. I've retr0brighted a few things, and some of my friends have too, all with great success. From my experience I haven't seen any negative side effects, but I would really like to hear about everyone else's experiences.copados33 wrote:What coin door? what are you talking about?, I have never tried to retrobright any of my cabs.
And yes, yellowing is caused by the anti-flame compound found on ABS and plastic based paints.
I've used Vinyl Dye on cabs before with excellent results. It does depends on the plastic since it actually seeps into it and, well, dyes it. Certain plastics don't take or require light sanding, but when it's done it looks great.
