It really is quite easy to do. If you have an idea for a design, go for it!

Looks great! How did you take the color out of the red dots on the head cover? I have tried everything and the red dots are still as red as ever. Even washed the stupid thing in straight bleach with no luck

So, I sent my putter off to the Cameron Custom shop for a loft/lie adjustment because a local guy screwed it up (long story). They charge you $45 even though loft/lie adjustments are free. So I bought a nice new black Cameron Cord grip (to replace the red) and got a Jackpot Johnny stamp on the face, both of which totaled the $45 they were going to charge me anyway for the loft/lie adjustment. I didn't want to have them change the paint fill simply because I can't see paying $72 for them to do it.

That blue looks great, I bet you're very happy with it.

How did you take the color out of the red dots on the head cover?

Rubbed neat bleach in with cotton pads until there was almost no colour left. Took about 10 minutes. They ended up yellowish, and a couple of Sharpies did the rest.

Yes, I'm very happy with the outcome. I've never been a fan of anything red, so the blue is really pleasing to my eye. Just need to get a headcover to match now.

Where can you buy "neat" bleach? Tried looking up information on it, but no luck. How does "neat" bleach differ from just good ol' regular bleach?

Very nice! I'd never be able to attempt that myself I don't think but you did a GREAT job it appears!!!

It's actually extremelly easy. I was hesitant at first as well, but finally just said the heck with it and went for it. It's next to impossible to screw up if you have the right paint and tools for the job.

Did you end up going with the Tamiya paint? If so did you order it online or is it readily available at local craft stores?

Yes, I used Tamiya paint. If you look online, there are some colors that have "clear" next to the color. These are the translucent colors. I called round and found some at local model airplane/car hobby store. I've heard people use Testors model paint as well (can be found at Michael's craft store) but I don't believe they have translucent colors.

I also ordered these needle point applicator bottles from A-West online: http://www.hobbymasters.com/a-westst...torbottle.aspx I ended up getting the 3 of the "flow 2" bottles (one for each color I have). You can store the paint in them and then just put the needle point on (it's removable) when you're ready to paint. These things are the most important part in my opinion. You could paint by dipping a toothpick into the paint but that would take a while. The needle bottles make it quick and painless.

Tamiya paints are available individually on eBay. I think I paid about $6 including postage for the three I used. You can buy applicators, but a few cocktail sticks will do the job just as well when you're painting a golf club.

I just meant regular kitchen/bathroom bleach, straight from the bottle, undiluted.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, then. I took some cotton swabs and applied the bleach with no luck and then I even washed the headcover in bleach and it did absolutely nothing to fade the red.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
