anyone refinished an origin to a darker finish? or black?
Saw one on eBay about a month ago. Even the blue RZN on the sole was black.
I missed this. Would've loved an image
On a lark, I decided to refinish my Origin to Black myself. Basically used the same paint I used to MM Proto my Vapor Pro irons. Still a work in progress but think it will come out nice. The metal parts take the paint well but the RZN portion does not seem to hold it. Might need some drying and reapplication a few times.
Here's a trick to getting the RZN material painted black:
Buy some Rustoleum "High Performace Enamel" spray paint. You can get it in gloss or flat black at Home Depot for like $5 (I love the flat black). Use blue painters tape to tape off the RZN areas. Then use an Exacto to very carefully and slowly cut out the RZN areas. Tape off the entire head so no spray paint sneaks through and spray the RZN areas. Go very quick and light so the paint doesn't pool up. 1 coat will do the trick, but 2 coats looks better and makes it more durable.
I've had success using this method with all sorts of clubs. The paint sticks to anything, is super durable, and dries very evenly. Good luck!
