Paint Fill Project (Scotty Cameron, MP-52's, MIzuno Wedges)

9 posts in this topic

So I got bored today and decided to do some paint fill on my clubs. I have been wanting to do it for some time. This is my first time, and I want to go over some of them, but I think for a first time I did okay. I figured I would share them with you guys.

Mizuno MP-T10 52* Wedge (Blue and White Paint Fill) need to go back over this one..

Mizuno R-Series 56* & 60* Wedge

I know she looks rough, but the Scotty is 12 years old and is by far the best club in my bag so I am reluctant to change it out.

I've been considering something like this...they look pretty nice!

How do you apply the paint? Ultra-thin brush?

Any special prep?

1. Remove the old paint fill with acetone and q-tips. You might have to use a toothpick to get out stubborn paint.

2. Fill with enamel paint of your choice - model paints work well or you can use nail polish. Fill the indented area right up to the top.

3. Use a paper towel dipped in acetone to lightly wipe away the excess.

4. Let dry. You can cover with clear nail polish for a more resilient finish.

For alternating colors like the Scotty pic, do one color first, cover with blue painter tape, then do the next color.  Hope this helps. Have fun!!

i started a thread about paint fills a while back . after watching a lot of OEM clubmaking videos, the professionals use these for paintfill and it seems to be a lot faster. you just overfill everything, and wipe off excess.

i don't recommend using clear polish. it hardens and begins to crack and chip off with use and pulls all the paint out with it (that's my experience). and it's really hard to get off after you apply it, so when you go to change colors, it is more difficult.

Yeah just like some of the other posts, I didn't have acetone, but I had nail polish with Acetone in it, so I let each iron soak in it for about 10 mins or so and I actually used a dental pick to scrape out the paint. The paint on the Scotty came out with almost zero effort. I guess 12 years and it was ready to go, lol. But I used small hobby brushes to fill the intendation and then wiped with a paper towel with a small amount of nail polish remover on it. I found one trick for the MP52's was that I was able to apply and wipe immediately and it worked great. It was just boredom and I wanted to do something to my clubs without spending a grand on replacing irons or woods. Good luck.

I didn't take a pic, but I will tell you first hand they look great with no paint fill also. I thought about leaving it with no pain fill, but I figured I spent all the time to do the paint fill might as well do it. Now that I know how easy it is to do I may end up going no paint fill if I get bored with the white.

I did this to my Mizuno wedges in the same colour scheme back in March, I have the MPT-11s now though and they are blue and white so no need to change them

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....

      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
