The canopy on one of my old cox Blue Corsairs has yellowed with use and time. Is there any way that I could remove the yellowing? I tried polishing it but it has not worked. Here is a pic. All help appreciated.

You could try one of the headlight lens cleaning/polishing kits, Turtle Wax etc..  I like Mequiars myself but all work well.  You will have to manually do it and it might be time consuming.

Perhaps UV light process is better.

Hello DavidII1984
Thanks for the information. I tried using clorox bleach and it did not work for me. First I tried mixed with water and later pure bleach but I had no luck.
