Do you guys contact spryevo through MGS or through an email? I have a question about the insert I need to get for my restore. What way have you guys had the most success contacting him?

I just went to Spryevo.com and clicked, contact us, there is a little form to fill out and then it will send through email. They returned an email very quickly I think it was the next day.

First a little background on this project, i wish i had taken "before" pictures of this putter. This was stored in what used to be our storage unit(see picture of whats left). This was hit by lightnin

Thinking about taking on this old Scotty for my first project. A lot of the black finish is intact with some pitting. I'm not at all concerned about maintaining the original finish. What direction would you take this head, Xstiff?

I might avoid that head due to the pitting on the face... having seen some torched/oil sealed C62s that are really well done, it'd be tempting... but I've also done one that was in about the same condition, mine may have been a little better, and due to the pitting, it made even pretty good work look just "meh". Find a good stainless head for project 1, no sealant worries that way, and can get a feel for the stainless heat coloring process.

Sound advice, much appreciated.

I might disagree at least a little...

 

I would try some silicon spray or 3in1 oil. Rub it in with some #### steel wool. Hard to tell from the pics, but that might be enough to surprise you.

 

If the pits are all the way to the metal, you can rub it down with some gun blue to touch it up.

 

Worth a shot - you have nothing to lose!

Yeah I mean when I hear pitting, I think of tiny little holes in the surface of the metal that have occurred with corrosion - if there's not any metal damage, it's definitely worth a try... if you already own the putter, it's definitely a green light... if buying to refurb, maybe take a pass on this one.

If it's going to be a gamer, a little character won't hurt - I use this circa daily:

 

Before:

After silicon spray and steel wool (and some black paint fill):

When I was trying to absorb _the entire thread_ last night (was dreaming about Xstiffshafts' Scottys), the before/after of your gamer is the reason I selected this one from the collection as my first attempt. I assumed removing the current finish would be a giant PITA and while there are several spots pitting, the areas on the face and top relief are really shallow. I'd probably game it on really fast greens if the rust didn't put me off. The sole is the worst. But the head has zero dingers. There is also no chance I would ever sell my first refurb project.

Considering all those things, my vision:

Sole - sand, polish, maybe hammer?

Face/Top-relief - Restore?

Paintfill - all electric blue (maybe blank the sole)

 

Can I get a two tone effect (polished grey sole/black face, etc)?

 

Thanks for the advice guys.

This sonbitch was one of the more frustrating projects to this point, but turned out to be worth it.

You can remove the finish without much trouble. If you have a dremel, these will do the trick nicely:

Way up this thread, I posted 2 studio design putters (#1 and #2) that I stripped with these buff wheels, then torched.

And honestly - the best part about that putter is the top line! Hard to find them without a ton of dings!

 

Just get after it and learn as you go - if you don't like the result, strip it down and try it again!

I keep more of them than I should under the auspicious of "I'll game this, for sure"... but I don't play enough any more to make good on it. The others, I'll sell on eBay/other secondary markets.

Can you remind me which putter you have, and do you know whether it's carbon or stainless? (Hint: If you don't, just put a magnet against the head. If it sticks or has any pull: carbon - if not: likely stainless)

Cool. Then in that case you can torch it to daaaaaaaark blue almost black (see newport TeI3 head I posted a few weeks ago) then just quench it, while still hot right after torching, in motor oil or 2-cycle oil or even liquid wrench oil to seal it. You just have to be able to entirely submerge the head in the quench. It will also darken during the quench - if you blast it prior to torching, it will be a matte finish. If you polish it will be glossy.
