Removing color paint from BioCell Iron Head

IsleOfManIsleOfMan Members Posts: 2,309 ClubWRX
I picked up a component BioCell 5 iron head from Hurricane Golf to try subbing in for my Forged Tec 5i. It's a women's version in "Beetroot" color but the loft and weight are identical to the men's head. Anyone know if Citristrip would remove the pink/purple "Beetroot" paint fill from the cavity and Cobra logo? I'm fairly sure it will take it off of the Cobra logo (which is printed on the aluminum badge insert) since I did this to remove the similar orange printing from my Forged Tecs, but I'm unsure if it will do it for the paint fill in the cavity. That might take something stronger?

Thoughts? Thanks!

    Any thoughts? Head will be here Saturday and I'll try CitriStrip first unless I get some feedback here.

    I use this stuff for all paintfill projects. The paint doesn’t stand a chance.

    I'm a painting contractor. Jasco is a fantastic product as Hoffa mentioned. The active ingredient is methylene chloride. If you go that route you may want to work outside or away from open flames. Good luck with your project.

    I think I'll try the Citristip first. If that doesn't work, even after 24 hours or even a couple of applications, I'll probably build the club first and see if I actually want to put it in play... if I decide to game it, then I'll look into trying something stronger like the JASCO product mentioned above.

    Just to report back, the main color in the cavity was part of an aluminum badge as well (not painted on the casting the way it looked in the stock photo) so the citristrip took it off pretty easily after sitting for around 12 hours (overnight). I did lose the word "Cell" under the "Bio" lettering, but I expected that to happen. All in all, it matches the Forged Tecs as well we can be expected and probably better than a mens BioCell would have (which has the black on/around the weight ports and in the inner cavity).

    May try a little brasso, but I'm not too worried about the little bit of scuffing (used a scotchbrite when I probably didn't need to).
