I have painted automobiles for years. One thing I can say is this company has a great product that you can do at home.

What would be the Don'ts...???

I was going to take it by the Archery Shop and have them strip everything off it....Being I have no press or tools to do so ...

then after it was painted....have them install the cams and string back on....

Great qustion Pappy... I was just thinking about hitting some of my parts as well. I was also wondering about the prep work, seems with any type of painting the prep is the most important step. Lets say your bow is a finish that is glossy and smooth, if you just paint it not likely to stick very well in the long run?
