I picked up a worn down looking white AE Starlite on ebay. It was very dirty and yellowed. After a good cleaning and two rounds of peroxide treatment on the plastic I think it turned out great.

I would never has guessed that a result that impressive was possible!

Great job.  Notable!

Amazing transformation!

I'm with Nick; would not have thought it possible.

Keep up the great work, and the pics!!

Best regards!

Thanks everyone! I should add, for cleaning the phone initially I used Fantastik and a good brush, and then I followed the bleaching methods with Salon Creme 40 as described elsewhere on the forums. Here are the internals, it is working but I am still figuring out how to make it ring, it has a slightly different network than my other Starlite. (WA1154A instead of WA1120A)


On my AE80, the red and black wires from the ringer go to the same terminals as the red and green wires from the line cord.  The ringer works on it.
