My little girl wants a bow for her 5th birthday. I have decided to get her the little diamond atomic. I am getting the black one with the pink on the limbs. I am wanting to take it apart and have the riser, cams, and limb pockets done in pink. My dad and little brother are in the auto body business, so I can either have them either powder coated or painted(professionally). My question is which one is better for bows? Is it o.k. to powder coat the cams? I know lots of people on here have had it done. Just wanting several opinions and advice. Thanks.

Yes, you can PC the cams, but don't do the rotating mods (clearance/fit issues). And be sure to not get much inside the limb pockets (clearance/fit again).

most cams and accessories are anodized. looks best in color, I think. best to gather all accessories and do them together. however I from experience, depending on alloys used, will have slight difference in color.... 6061 vs 7075 etc.,

Thank you. Which do you think would work best?

PC is more durable than most automotive finishes. But if your family are in the business they should be able to put on a solid, durable urethane clearcoat that will be plenty durable. The biggest issue would be paing wearing out of the cams' grooves if you use most paints.
