Cleaning/Painting Delta TX Ceiling shroud?

Hi All,

I have a Coleman Delta TX A/C in my 78 sovereign. The plastic shroud has yellowed from all the years of UV light and exposure I guess. I want to either paint it or put it in a bleach bath or something to brighten it back to a nice white color. Am I better off just pulling it out, scuffing it and painting it? Or will it work to put it in a bath of bleach to turn the plastic back to a nice lean white again?

Has anybody done this or is a new replacement readily available?

Stream On!!

Are you talking about "RetroBright"?

I have never used it, but some people are wild about how good a job it does. Not everyone, though...

If it's to be, it's up to me.

I have painted my AC shrouds, refrigerator vent, and end caps, all of which turn yellow with age. They cannot be cleaned nor the yellow removed. The yellow is permanent.

I use Krylon Fusion paint for plastics, satin finish, white color. It works very very well.
