    Hey folks, This afternoon I had the pleasure of reassembling my bow after finishing my DIY camo job. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Initially my plan was to do a spray can hydro dip, but when it came to setting up and a test on an unimportant trinket, I couldn't figure out how to...

    Anyone object to the idea of laying down plasti dip first then spray painting your favorite camo pattern on? Then all you have to do is peel it off. Instead of sanding then painting or just painting and it you want to take it off you have to use nail polish remover, denatured alcohol etc to get...

    I used a Shakespeare Necedah. First I cut out stencils; Then I did an undercoat in camo tan I used a spray adhesive on the back of the stencils, just a light coat. Then I applied them to the bow. Next I sprayed the topcoat of slate black. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I decided to refinish my 21" excel, stripping off all the paint was easy with CITRISTIP and probably my first mistake. Now nice and clean, I wiped it down with acetone wearing vinyl gloves, the applied DUPLICOLOR acid etching primer, let dry per directions, then topcoat color and let dry. Looked...

    Looking at some axiom limbs to add to proline riser. Great price and good reviews. Problem with the limbs is there is some white on them and i want to hunt with them. Can these be painted ( black).....? I could spend the extra $50 and get T.T. black max limbs but money is very tight right now(...

    I've got a Das riser coming for my latest bow project. I was hoping for Lost Camo, but turns out it is Nat Gear. Can't handle that pattern. So I did some research, and bedliner paint was all I could come up with. So I did some more digging, and I came up with Krylon Fusion spray paint. It says...
