Finished the Detour also. Went ahead and just blasted the alignment bar and screwed it back in. IMG_1983.JPGIMG_1974.JPG

I have always thought about picking up a detour and do an refinish project. Would love to see a topline shot to see the contrast between the head and bar.

The color on the body of that Detour is one of the best and most even purples I've ever gotten. I kind of wish I'd done it on a normal Newport 2. Would look super.

 

Does anyone know where a face only for the Detour can be bought? Scoured eBay, did some googling, so far no dice.

I would think that spryevo.com would be the best source. Or you could take a shot at making one yourself

You been practicing your welding? Cut the bar off just behind the face, cut the very back off of the bar (where the Titleist logo is), and weld it to the back of the face. Grind it down to fit and bolt it back together!

All you really need is a band saw to make the cuts. Or... if the Titleist logo isn't a big deal, cut it back a touch thicker than the putter face, grind it smooth, and bolt it back on.

I think I've seen some .5s on Detours.

Not if the Black and Gold have anything to say about it. Hopefully we see you in Huston.

Oh no, I was just beginning to like you JA. Now you gotta go and tell me you're a Steelers fan? Cmon man! They're seriously the only AFC team I have a chip on my shoulder toward. Might have something to do with them passing Dallas in titles.

The reason this is uneven and splotchy is due to the pvd coating - this shite is a real thorn in my side. I enjoy working on Bettinardis because they're carbon steel, and they're so unique -- but it's a real pain in the butt to strip the PVD finish. When I torched it, I had spent a good amount of time grinding (fine silicon carbide wheels) and buffing it to mirror like shine. Prior to that I had beadblasted it. And most of the PVD was still in tact. When heating it, I could see the pvd begin to turn to embers and flaking a little bit - so I went ahead and blasted again at pretty high pressure. Finally, I saw the PVD come off in the blast cabinet! If I had known the "metallic fog" finish was PVD, I would've just torched it the way it was bc torching pvd creates some insane colors. Oh well, live and learn.

 

Once I have this thing prepped, I'm going to do another oil quench - we'll see how it looks.

OK very goofy question here, is there any way to stop an oil can finish wedge from rusting? I am trying to do an oil can Vokey for a friend but I am worried that any work I do will just rust over.

 

Sent from my Nexus 5X using MyGolfSpy mobile app

Ok. I don't know much about finishing, but I read to make sure you keep it clean after every use and after your round there is a special cloth they use to keep guns clean, use one of those.

Can't be positive it works.

I guess it depends on how he takes care of clubs in general.

 

If he normally cleans his clubs after each round, they will be fine. You can buy a special oil cloth to wipe them down with, but I normally use silicon spray on a microfiber towel.

 

That is how I keep all of my torched and oil can wedges and putters from rusting.

 

If he is the guy that throws his dirty clubs in the trunk and never cleans them, they're gonna rust.
