Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

What better way than to jump in than starting a thread on my first project!

 

Below is the first Ping putter I have recently bought and looking to restore.

 

This is a Ping Myday!

 

This is my first project with anything like this. So would really appreciate any help or information anyone can give with regards to the process I should use plus the best equipment.

 

Here are some pictures below.

 

Thanks in advance!

What was your process on restoring these? I do limited restoration work on vintage razors, and wondering if it’s similar enough that I could do putters too.

I soaked it in coke for around 24 hours. Then used a cleaning product to get some of the marks off. After letting that sit for a few mins wash this off. Following that, I used some fine scotch brite and rubbed it all over under running water.

So I’ve been very eager to get this prep’d before the arrival of the new grip.

Below are the before and after pictures.

Very very happy with how this has turned out!

dremel with a small bit and some metal polish should do the trick. 

toothpicks work great to get polish out of the staled lettering

Finally finished the Anser 3. The face had a lot of dings in. So what I’ve done is sand down the face to get it nice and smooth while still trying to keep the vintage look of the putter. Here’s how it looked before and now after:-

Nothing against the job you did; cleanup looks good, but many Ping purists don’t think you should cleanup the patina look on these older models. Also, those clubs are typically light, how much weight did you lose sanding down the face?

Good points! Although I do like them cleaned up just a bit - especially the pitting/scratches/dings on the face since those do effect performance when hitting the ball. Didn't think about the weight issue, though. Definitely something to consider as I look at potentially trying something like this.

Thanks for the feedback - always appreciated as this is something I’ve only recently started doing. The face had to be cleaned up as it would have had a detrimental impact on the performance.

 

as this was hand sanded, there was very little weight lost but will be countering this with weights

You would be surprised how much you lose with hand sanding.   I would bet 5ish grams.
