    like my uncle Forrest used to say, "careful is as careful does" or somethin like that. I had to spend 100.00 on one, way too much IMO, but he must be COMPLETE haha

    Actually, I tried to use hydrogen peroxide 6% to whiten my Getaway.

    But there are certain yellowing just stay there and refuse to get away. Do I need to do it many times to remove it?

    Is there such kind of yellowing that can never go away even with hydrogen peroxide method?

    I spent 3 MONTHS whitening a Dai Atlas once. (can you believe it?) :eek: 

    He's dark yellow, or rather, dirty brown on his white parts. And he didn't turn out bone white. (Look more off white to me.)

    December month coupled with weak sunlight & often rainy days certainly didn't help me much on the project.

    And I was on 3% Hydrogen Peroxide through out.

    At the end, did it turn bone white?

    And, do you change the liquid every time?

    ^ Like I'd mentioned earlier, it did not become bone white.

    I could only get it up to off white bestest. :D 

    Changing of Hydrogen Peroxide? Mm...That depends really. Dunno about the rest of the boys here but I usually change a new dose if I find the results abit lacklustre. (Meaning the process is taking longer & longer time to attain the usual results.)

    From those whitening process pictures I have seen so far, they are able to get the yellowing off 100% and it becomes so bone white..

    Let me try again with my Getaway during my 1 week break holiday in Feb.

    Luckily I did not bid for the yellowing Grand Max Cerebros offered by Shyeah in Ebay..

    Strong sunlight helps. Oxi Clean can help.
    I wonder, though, if the Max in this video had any rusting from the exposure to all of those vapors? Never saw a full Max getting this treatment.

    Oh...and if by some chance you use a heat lamp (not that you would outside) as some people do, leave PLENTY of distance between the lamp and the target bot. I slagged a junker Fort Max's left foot (see sig) by leaving it too close to the lamp.

    Sunlight is much more user friendly.

    just get a container and keep it in there for a few days or as long as you want the yellowing will fade
