    Default Info needed!

    Okay everyone! need advise, ideas, help. I am not a novice @ refinishing. But I like you guys tricks and advise.
    1st a customer gave me this bow and wants the green changed.
    2nd someone before him urethaned it and it was bad.

    Now the loaded question!!

    How would you refinish it?
    What paint would you use on the glass limbs?

    You lucky Dog!! Nice bow, but you're gonna have to learn to shoot from the correct side with that one. Bow really deserves a quality refinish, so I'd ask a professional, someone like bowdoc, yorktown5, or the man who made the bow originally, Larry Hatfield, although he is in Cambodia right now, he'll be comming home soon. You can find them all over on Stickbow.com "LeatherWall".

    I would film dip it. I have tried stripping urethane from old recurves with strippers that I cut to weaken them, but it never turns out good. I've tediously used scrubbing pads and very light grit sand papers to roughen up runny varnish coatings similar to this and then used flat colors to do camo paint jobs. These days film dipping is the way to go.

    What a way to ruin a beautiful bow.

    Good luck!!!

    After thinking about it more, the wood riser leave the natural wood grain and use a snake skin film dip for the limbs. Check out https://www.mydipkit.com/index.html
