So I want to remove the black and red paint on my Vokeys but not sure if I should use acetone or maybe a needle to scrape away the paint. ANY ideas???

I have used acetone. There are more aggressive paint removers at the hardware store but some of them can mar the finish too.

Needle helps. Don't feel the need to get it all at once.

Ok I'll try the needle and maybe a small amount if acetone at the same time. I don't want to mar the finish of my wedges but I would like to see them with the paint. I've seen it done before and it looked good but I can't remember where I saw it.

I have had some success in small areas using acetone and a q-tip. wet it and hold it there to keep the acetone from evaporating and that seems to help. test the acetone with the finish somewhere you won't see first to be sure it won't spot it or anything though. not sure what would be effected, but I always try this.

 

Just like they suggest for fabric cleaners. :)

Do you need special paint to re-fill? My Vokeys bottom numbers have lost some of the fill, I'll probably try just removing first, see what it looks like, but if I need to refill with black - what should I go for?

+1 Q tips and nail polish remover works well!

Some just use Testors model paint. Obviously water based paint would be an issue.

Tamiya paints are also very popular.

I've used marker pen ink refills. Just slop it on thoroughly, let dry fully, and rub off the excess with an ink eraser. Works nice on bare metal. I also tried nail polish but that was difficult to get right. You need a lot of cotton and acetone and a lot of careful very light wiping. It's a job and a half getting the excess varnish off without affcting the vanish in the grooves. I think it's better to shop for different colored ink.

I used Acrylic paint on the custom paint fill I showed in the other thread. Then I gamed the putter in wet conditions the other day. No issue. I like going that route because its non-toxic and is easy to clean up.

I didn't have much luck using nail polish remover. Not as strong as the Model Master solvent I was using. Maybe my wife buys the cheap stuff. :huh:

Solvent, then needle, and if necessary needle dipped in the solvent. For some reason, I had a heck of a time removing the paint fill from my Rife putter. But eventually got it done with a lot of patience and work.

I am interested to hear how this wears over time, especially after wet rounds. Do you wipe it down before the headcovering?

Always...if you don't then you're just asking for corrosion.

OK well I started removing the paint on my 52* Vokey and it sure is time consuming. I hope to have it done by this weekend if I can find the time. Used some nail polish remover and a needel and so far so good but just a slow process.

It is time consuming, but still worth it in the end. I'm going to do my wedges in Arizona State maroon and gold. :angry:

Only if they are those CG14's you can't hit and I get to keep them. :)

You won't bag them anyway unless you stamp PING onto them. :)

Wrong - I'll just do the old pro trick and tape up the back. Ping will never know the difference and after a few cases of beer neither will I...
