Taylormade MG2 in hand and RUSTED. How to with pictures.
So my MG2s came in a little earlier than expected. So I watched the Rick Shiels video like a lot of you and saw him spraying the faces to help accelerate the raw faces oxidation. I assumed he used a Hydrogen Peroxide/Vinegar/Salt solution and someone in the other threads confirmed my beliefs. So I figured I would copycat him and give everyone a realistic idea of how long it takes, what to do, blah blah.
So here are my wedges. Fresh out of the wrapper with the sticker removed, which is very satisfying if youre into that type of thing. MG2 Black, Nippon 115 wedge matte, and midsize Golf Pride MC red/black grips.
Here is the beginning of the oxidation process. To see an initial result in the oxidation it literally takes 10 seconds before you see it start working on the face. This was after maybe a minute.
Here is the head after about 3-5 minutes.
And here it is after I was satisfied with the results and did not want to cause any deformation to the grooves (which I doubt it would in the time frame). Around 15 minutes total and washed off.
Also, the etching on the back will rust as well. Cool touch if they meant to do it, who knows?
I just poured the solution onto the club head and let it sit on the face. I believe misting would be a better alternative but I didn't have a spray bottle handy. 15 minutes total on my end, sitting in the sun. So...The recipe to do this is as follows.
8oz Hydrogen Peroxide
1ish oz of Distilled White Vinegar
1/2 tbsp of Kosher Salt
Let me know what you guys think. I know this is just a jumpstart to the true oxidation process. I am also not one that thinks rusting adds a ton of anything other than looks, and I happen to be one of the few that enjoy the aesthetics of it.
