Member DIY Club Restores/Refurbs/Refinishes


Recommended Posts

Hey MGSers

 

I thought it might be cool to have a central thread for the group to share pics/details of recently completed projects, ideas, stucks, ask/answer questions, help those who are beginning the highly rewarding process of DIY refurbs/finishes avoid some of the landmines we ran (and sometimes still run) into throughout the course of a project, and maybe even have a contest or two, etc..

 

If there's already a thread like this, then feel free to scold, mock, and ridicule, but as I browsed (aka: admired) the forum and members' projects, I didn't see one. There's a wealth of collective knowledge and talent within the pages of this community, so it will be neat to see what this thread yields if y'all are inclined to share.

 

 

In the spirit of getting us started, here are the three Camerons I've completed over the course of the last 3-4 weeks. I work almost exclusively on putters. I enjoy them most. I've done a couple wedges and woods with moderate success and tried to black ox a set of T-Zoids when I first became interested in this stuff, which was an unmitigated disaster. :unsure:

 

 

Golo 3:

 

The before state on this one was basically mint, so envision a factory Golo 3 here (i.e. I didn't take a before pic)

 

After:

Studio Select Squareback #2:

 

Another putter in very good shape before I started it, other than a tiny bit of bag chatter.

 

After:

Studio Stainless Newport Beach:

 

This one was really chewed up when I got a hold of it. Topline, neck, body all mangled, paintfill chipped and fading, etc... Took some serious sanding and filing to get it into reasonable shape.

In the restoring process are you losing any head weight?

Yes, but the weight loss is negligible. The most recent studio Style I did required more filing and sanding than anything else I've done to date. Lost

Previous condition was so-so... probably just shy of 7/10.
