Does anyone know of a way to get the yellow tint out of older plastic hard baits? I am re doing some older rapalas that have a yellow bill.

Naaaaaaaarrrrrr, , it's the sunlight/age thing with the plastic (perspex), you will probably find it is pretty brittle too. The only way to get it out is remove it, and replace with Polycarbonate (Lexan) - perspex is renowned for breaking down like this. If you do a search there are lots of ways of removing it, but none are simple. pete
