The New Amiga 1200 Case

Treat your Amiga with a new case

Over time your 30 years old Amiga 1200 case is most certainly yellow to a certain level.
The mild coloration (or heavy for some users!) is due to UV light exposure & the fire retardant present in the plastic.
With Retr0brighting, the solution is far from permanent. The case gets back to its yellow state and the process damages its case even further.
The new Amiga 1200 case is made out of  a better UV resistant plastic. Its color will remain the same for a way longer period than the original.
