    Hey ES4X5, here are the screw sizes for everything on my sight. Sorry it took me so long to get them. I was waiting until I was putting the sight back together, so I didn't lose anything. 100_0749.JPG

    Thanks E, I did'nt want to take either of mine apart without have the replacement stainless on hand. The sight I'm changing the screws in is a different year than the sight you're showing above, has a red and gold logo instead of the green and black, but I think that the screws that I want to change will be the same size. At least I hope so. Thanks again. Rig is looking great!

    IMG_0258.JPGGlad to help ES4X5. I lost one of the little washers putting mine back together, but it doesn't seem to have made much difference. Still waiting on the riser and cam I had to leave at the dip shop when I went to watch. Long story short, we had to strip, prime, and repaint the riser and cam. Paint was too wet to load in my trunk, so he kept it and was going to dip them for me. Just waiting on it to arrive anyday now, so I can get it all back together. Here's the sight after I got it finished.

    Well, if you notice, my last post was on Aug. 18th. The bow had been dipped, and clearcoated before that date (Aug. 8th actually), and was just needing shipped back to me. I FINALLY got it today. Over a month and a half later. Yeah, I've been "happily" waiting. Anyway, here it is. Notice the base color for the riser and bottom cam don't match the rest of the bow. Those are the two parts that the dipper did, supposedly using the same basecoat I was using. NOT. His is a white base, mine is a tan that he told me was what he was going to use on the riser and cam. Needless to say, I retract anything good I said about this guy in previous posts. On a great note though, Hutch's strings look BEAUTIFUL on this bow. Couldn't ask for a better match. 100_0770.JPG100_0769.JPG100_0772.JPG

    I cant see it clearly but i am using my phone. I still looks cool, better then what the company uses. So, what does it cost for the "pro" vs the amateur to do a dip?

    Great looking bow.

    bro,

    did i miss anything, why suddenly the bow when to the dip shop? is the dip kit not working??
    had it to be stripped off and re-do by the shop on the riser?

    typically, cost wise doing one bow in full camo like this is going to be about the same either way, and alot less work to have a pro do it. I was wanting to learn how to do it, so I can dip another bow, and a few other things as well.

    A few things to remember about dipping. The common online camo kits use a solvent based basecoat. They HAVE to be dipped within 24 hours of basecoating, or the paint dries too hard, and the film will NOT stick. That leads to restripping, repainting, and a huge pain. Most oneline kits are going to cost between $100-125. I was told about Ozarks Hydrographics as a supplier of materials for dipping. They also sell kits, and cost about $125 for a kit. They use a water based paint that can set for up to 40 days before dipping. They have a huge assortment of patterns available, as well as basecoat colors. That's where I'll be getting all my supplies from now on.

    Things you'll need to dip with a common kit: A ventilated area to paint in. ( I did mine outdoors) A rack of some sort to hang parts on while they dry. A clean water supply for rinsing parts once dipped. A water tank big enough to completely submerge your parts in to apply the film. Rubber or latex gloves. A respirator of some sort (cheapies work ok). Masking tape. Razor knife or sharp scissors. Bailing wire to make hangers out of.

    To use a kit from Ozarks Hydrographics you'll also need: Air compressor complete with filters (about $200 for a small compressor and filters), paint guns ($60 at Wal Mart), sand paper or a scuffing pad, measuring spoons.

    If you chose to strip the bow completely down before painting, you'll also need some paint stripper ($10) and self-etching primer ($15).

    Hope this answers a few questions, but if not, feel free to ask!
