You are going to want to put fasteners into every threaded hole there is on your X-Force. Preferrably not the ones you will use later to attach your equipment because they will more than likely get some powder coat on them. Try to get a bit longer ones so that there is plenty of room under the head of the screw/bolt for maneuvering and a good finish around the holes.

You can cover the PSE stickers or try to order some from PSE's website, I believe once you tear them off they are not going to be the same to try and put back on. Same with the Grip I believe, you might be better off just tearing it off and replacing with new. The adhesives on those types of things are usually only a one time use with many problems if removed and reattached.

Any decent powder shop will take care of protecting tapped holes. You should take off any removable items like grips, etc. They will do a light sand blast before powder application and should be able to blast off any stickers, etc. As mentioned, you will need to reorder any stickers you want on your bow.
