    Default Risor dipping or new paint?

    My Z has some small chip's on the risor, I would like some info on maybe getting it dipped the same as the limb's or maybe all black. Who does this kind of work and whats the cost $, or does anyone have any other idea's?

    I suggest you do the following: strip the riser yourself with stripper you get at lowes or Wal Mart. Buy a gallon. It may take two or three going over to get it all off. Then take it to a local auto customizing or motorcycle shop and have it powder coated. I had my Black Mamba Powder coated riser, cams, cable post, string stop all for $55. On AT they want $80 for a riser. You should be able to get a riser done for $25 if you do the strip work. If not it is twice as much. It is not hard to strip, put on a thick coat of stripper let it sit for 1/2 hour wash off with hose. Repeat. Use toothbrush to get in tight areas and a bigger scrub brush for the rest. Use gloves that stuff will eat your hands.

    Sounds pretty good, but excuse me for being a dummy, but what color is powder coated, I'm assuming white, *powder* but after that if I want it flat black will that work also. I know the guy at the auto shop, he would hook me up for sure, now I just have to strip the bow, string cable limb's, then strip the risor I can do, hey thanks.

    You can get powder coating in just about any color. I've even see metallic flake finishes.
