    Default 2005 Saber Rebuild

    So I tore down my old saber and rebuilt it. The riser got stripped and re-done in black, and Hutch hooked me up with an awesome new set of strings and a new sling! As usual the strings are first class! Thanks Hutch

    Saber tore down. I had pics of it stripped to the magnesium, and of the paint process, but my hard drive crashed and they're gone. But the end result looks pretty good!

    Believe it or not, I used spray on truck bed liner! So far so good, I'll let y'all know how it holds up.

    Definitely different and individual. I'd be willing to bet a paycheck that it's more durable than a regular dip or paint job, too.

    I'm hoping the bedliner paint will hold up well! Like I said, I'll let you guys know how it does...
