    Default Onza 3 project

    Well i put my order in for some Barnsdale limbs for the onza 3 i just picked up. I decided that the camo riser with black limbs was not a look i cared for so I started a little project! I amo not really sure where I'm going with it yet or what kind of paint job i want to put on it but i started stripping anyway and i found a way that is beyond easy and quick.

    First i started stripping accessories, cable slide, and string stop

    Then I ran to the hardware store to pick up my stripping agent. Safety first

    Then i applied the stripping gel to the riser with the paint brush while it was hanging from a tree. And it started working in minutes.

    You should be allowed up to five pics in each post, depending on size. Before uploading try down sizing the pics to about 35% of the original size. After down sizing save the file and it should be about the right size for any future postings.
