This isn't retr0brite....but I imagine that is possible regardless, as retr0brite works on the same principle as sodium carbonate cleaners. Some of these were done over a month ago, it hasn't degraded any yet....but yellowing occurring again in a few years, I would say its very possible. I've read that a clearcoat stops it from happening again....but I'm not going through all that.
