Bought myself a G15 driver and Bridgestone Jumbo III Blades (funny enough, easy to hit and high launching). Decided to jazz them up:

Before:

After




Ping G15:

Painting an old driver:
Step 1: Sanding


Step 2: Taping


Step 3: Primer


Step 4: Three coats of matt black


Step 5: Quick coat of car wax




After one game, repeat painting process. Kidding. Paint actually quite tough. When you need to touch up, light sanding and then one coat of paint. Does it affect performance? Yes, my drives are now further and straighter - 181 m push to wrong fairway. Previously 180m hook.

Enjoy!

Not sure why the the irons pictures didn't pop up but basically it was shiny so I got it sanded and buffed. A fella at Lorong 8 Toa Payoh Industrial Estate did it at $3 an iron head. I have since purchased a small bench grinder and now I do it myself.

Hi buzz1211, do you happen to have the exact address of that fella in Toa Payoh? I do need his help to jazz up my irons. Appreciate your sharing and btw nice work done on your Ping. Cheers!

Great DIY hobby, saves money too. I also like the sense of humor "...drives are now further and straighter- 181m push to wrong fairway. Previously 180m hook" 2 thumbs up!

Great job !

Good to have the space to get the bench grinder for DIY.

Maybe good to have the wordings on the iron head filled before grinding and they will look as good as new.

Have a small spray booth and you are in business for customize golf clubs for others in your spare time Cool

Can't recall address but you go to Toa Payoh lor 8 industrial', you drive past Toyogo where they sell all the plastic stuff and continue on the road until you see a sign that says they do chemical work for your altars etc. that's the shop. It's one way road so cannot miss it. Next to the shop is CTE.
