    We are all familiar with the concept of white plastics yellowing, but are white paint aps as susceptible to yellowing as white plastic? I'm hoping that someone might know more about this than I do. Thanks!

    Hmmm. I guess I'm not the only one who doesn't know.

    It's less succeptible to certain types of yellowing from the atmosphere like lots of 80's plastic (C64/NES i'm looking at you..). However, it's can be more succeptible to damage from UV, depending on what type of paint. For example, if it's epoxy or polyester, it'll be virtually indestructable.
