Yellow discoloration removal

Anyone have any tips on removing the yellow discoloration that is common on older cars on the visors?

I recently had the leather in my 1988 560SL cleaned and conditioned by a specialist. My Vinyl visors were physically in fairly good condition but were badly stained a dark brown color in spots. The technician dyed the visors to match the Palomino leather. They look great for now, we will see how they last. I don't know if the earlier soft visors can be treated in the same way. I suppose that with some effort one could color match and dye their own visors.

Clean it...clean it again...and clean it a third time...then paint it. I did mine 8 years ago and they look the same today.
