    So Ive done some extensive tal strip testing. Finding anything and everything to slather it on to test it out. Tal strip has not damaged any metal at all. None. I declare it safe for all metals. And it will remove any and all paints. [size="2"]The one thing I havnt been able to determine is if it would damage a black ox finish.

    [/size]




    So is this a safe process for Adams PVD finishes? I'd like to do the paint on my A4 Tours but would like to know what works best without harming the finish. Another member suggested Citri Strip.

    Agree, this should be a sticky. I need to change out some paint on the R9 "9"s and gonna try the Tal Strip and qtip method... Thanks!

    I have not done it on an adams club specifically so I cant say for certain. I havnt had any issues yet with any finishes, but of course the first time I say "I guarantee it wont hurt" is the first time it does. Citri Strip works decent too. Theres just nothing like tal strip and 5 minutes... image/partytime2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':partytime2:' />

    i plastered the face of my 910's with tal strip and the PVD (i assume its PVD) on the titleist faces showed now ill effects. however, the tal strrip was only on the club face for at most 10 minutes.

    Glad to head it didnt affect the finish! Didnt think it would!
  • polarisdude94polarisdude94 Members Posts: 263
    Does the enamel look better than the acrylic? also does the acetone added make it have that translucent color, or just the glossy finish? Also, will using the acetone with acrylic still give the same glossy finish?
  • HuckleBogey_FinnHuckleBogey_Finn Members Posts: 339
    The translucent is actually a type from tamiya. I prefer the acrylics over the enamels. The acetone is just for clean up. You don't want to apply it directly to the paint because it would strip it off. If you do the paint right and let it dry you should have a nice gloss finish, unless you use matte paint of course. image/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    You can find the Tamiya paints at any Hobby Shop or even on Ebay...



    When I was doing mine I just googled hobby shops in (town name) and there was one about 10 mins away. I never even knew it was there...

    +1 to your statement. Forget testors and go with tamiya acrylic only. gloss and clear are the best options imo

    only thing, my wedges were brand new, only hit one round. they were vokey w/ black nickel finish and the acetone rubbed some finish off on the bottom. no biggie, now that they're broken in, the bottom has rubbed off some with play.

    Started my Tommy Armour 845s' last night. I am planning on doing one club at a time. Thinking St. Louis Blues theme, Blue and Gold for the 9 and wedges, and Red and Orange for the 3-8. I will post up as soon as one is done.

    Very good! Thanks for the tutorial. Looks great!

    Just a thought I'd throw out there , sorry if it was mentioned before , Nail polish works extemely well for this.



    It's cheap and available everywhere ,comes in thousands of colors ,opacities , pearls , metallics, etc. Drys super fast so you can do dozens of options in an evening and is very easy to clean up.



    You can even cut it with acetone for additional transparency. Durability is very good as well and typically lasts me (on the sole) a full season easy. Back of the clubs last indefinately.



    Just another option.



    Nice thread.

    Another question,

    -whats the best way to 'thin' the paint, asuming I will be using acrylics.....will acetone not be appropriate...maybe use 'paint thinner'...what to use with acrylics? (Edit, just googled, and Tamiya sells its own thinners specifically for their acrylics...)



    Also- anyone tried using a syringe with a needle to do the lettering fill and small area's...maybe with more precision and ease? Thanks

    Rubbing alcohol works well to thin the paint as the OP mentioned.



    I usually just use toothpicks to do the paint-fill since you don't have to be perfect, any excess can be cleaned up with acetone.

    I have used syringes and needles before (I am a paramedic and my wife a FNP so they are easy to come by) and toothpicks actually work better. Less prep and all that. Tried and true usually the cheap-o things work the best!

    There is no fear at all of going at it with a scotty...worst you can do is mess up so bad that you have to start over. No big deal. Thats what I love about this is there is no way to damage anything, just make it look ugly and have to do it again.
