Hello!My vg 8235 msx2 from philips seems to have lost some of the color due to age.The plastic seems to have lost a bit of the color quality.Is there a way to restore it?Some special paint or something?I have seen in forums,that for amiga computers that became yellow there is a special procedure to restore the original white.Now msx had different color but is there something similar?I want the msx to look like the way it was over 20 years ago!

The amiga is not painted.
But I do not believe the retro-bright works

For the max you can respray the parts.
Sometime I spray computers, but you loose the printed txt on computer

I use Renault Paint-Spray color number 630

no not possible.
Philips computers have painted covers and frontpanels.

They are made from plack plastic.
