I was in dire need of some new grips, and after some research and YouTube info, I decided to take the do it myself plunge. You read about the bad experiences, the mess etc, but I decided to try it anyway. I bought some GP New Decades, a rubber vise grip, some tape, a hook blade, and no odor mineral spirits. I have no negative to say about it. Very straight forward and pretty darn easy to do. What's nice is my grips will now be changed out more often. For those considering it, don't be scared, it is a very doable endeavor.
