Hi.

The synthetic grips can be removed using a sharp serated knife. Any residue can be cleaned up with sharp single edge razor blades.

A double layer of cork tape can be installed.

If you prefer cork rings it is almost impossible to do a fore grip but a butt grip is possible.

If I can be of further assistance please don't hesitate.

Hi,

I install the first layer of cork tape. It has adhesive backing.
I scruff up the blank area. Brush on rubber cement and follow drying instructions on bottle. Install the cork tape, gettin seams as close as possible. Mask tape the ends to hold in place. Let dry approx 24 hours.

Install 2nd layer of cork tape the same way. I offset the 2nd layer so the seams do not line up over each other.

To finish ends I install a short piece of synthetic grip material at each end. 1-2" long. When epoxy is dry I sand the piece to shape while turning the rod in lathe.

You can also use black electrical tape. Then carefully wrap black thread over the tape. Apply 2 or 3 coats of finish epoxy.. It will look great.

Have fun doing this.
