I had forgotten about this, what did you use? It looks good.
Here is a link to the process I mentioned in the other thread.

Crankbndr, pretty much the same process. Just need lots of sunlight. So far the best results for lightening fuel soaked plastic. Haven't tried it on colored plastic...yet.

As an example, 8 hours of sunlight with 40 Volume Creme. Not 100% better, but one heck of a lot better. Hope this helps with others during their restoration process.
