    Hi there everyone. I just got a nes console from a friend of mine. The issue is that it is all yellowish. I was wondering if there is someway I could buy a new case for the system and replace its outer cases or not since i was looking online but i couldnt really find anything. if not, is there any other way to get rid of the yellowness?

    Thank you for your time!

    You should look into something called "retrobrite" or could be spelled retrobright? Either way its a product that is sold...

    You can also make your own out hydrogen peroxide and some other stuff the formula is in Google with step by step instructions.

    I have seen some results video's and the stuff seems to work near miracles.

    Astrageone has made a homebrew version of Retrobright iirc

    I could be wrong but I saw her mentioning it somewhere..
