Has anyone experience with stripping the paint of a saddle? I've got a
fiz:ik Pave, black on top, yellow at the sides. After a year the yellow is disappearing and makes my sadde look bad.

Would it be possible to get the yellow off, and apply black, to get an all black saddle.

How to proceed?

Dirk, Is the yellow on the plastic sides or is the yellow leather or cloth? If its the plastic sides, they usually remove with a couple of screws and you can paint any color you want. I've done it with a couple of saddles but I have not done it with this particular saddle.

It's yellow paint on leather. Someone else proposed to take it to the shoemaker who's specializing in repainting ladies shoes. Sounded like a good idea.
