Title: Graupner True Blue white decking
Post by: leaky on August 19, 2018, 08:39:18 PM
I've just took my Graupner True Blue out of storage and got it into running order but whilst in storage the white decking has dis-coloured ie it's gone brown in patches. It was stored in its original box in an unheated garage with minimal direct sunlight the whole of the underside of the deck is dis-coloured. Can this be somehow corrected or is it a re-paint im thinking exposure to direct sunlight may do it any idea's?

The area under the deck is really quite dis-coloured it's similar to smoke damage i wonder if the ambient heat has sort of de gassed the plastic where there is no gloss coat.
