Glad to be part of the forum. Purchased a red 95 SL500 in Fort Meyers, FL last October and drove it back to Illinois. It has been stored since then. I noticed when I removed the hard top and activated the soft top, the plastic windows have a yellow tint to them. Can anyone give me a good method for restoring to original clear color. BTW, I was a C3 corvette collector and my windows were all glass .

thanks for your help

Once the plastic starts to yellow, you're probably stuck with it. It is the plastic degrading after a number of years. Best bet would be to find some replacements. What year C3's?

The best place to ask this question is on the 129 forum, here is a link;
