Brightening yellowed plastic parts (IndyCam)

I have tried to brighten the plastic case of this Indy Cam, which looked really terrible! Almost completely yellow/brown instead of the original gray.

The result after two treatments exposed to UV sun light covered in hydrogen peroxide turned out surprisingly well! I also brightened an old SGI keyboard with similar result!
