Just got one as it has always been my dream putter, love the way it looks and currently game a 35 inch studio stainless Newport 2. I have a few questions

How much lighters will the Tei3 be and will it be hard for me to game?

Also what do I need to do to take care of this putter and keep it rust free and in good shape if I choose to game it?

Thanks!

The TeI3 unrestored has a 330 gram head, same as the studio stainless unless it’s marked otherwise on the sole.

Florida is on the money.
If your Studio Stainless is 35" stock, then the Tel3 will be the same - 330g head and 35" shaft.
I must admit to having to get use to distance control a little more with the Teryllium inserts, but they are great to putt with and are very sexy.
MAKE SURE you wipe it down after every round with either a silicon cloth or a soft cloth with baby oil - and be sure to get into the corners of the cavity. Never leave it in a damp headcover. Your Tel3 putter is Carbon and not as easy to maintain as the stainless.
Having said that the old BOS Black Oxide finishes still stand the test of time if you look after them,
Great pick up - congratulations. :-)

By dry headcover, do you mean one that hasn't been used on the course or one that hasn't been rained on? I really only have two headcovers and they have both been used is the main problem lol.

I just bought a oil rag from Scotty Cameron, which I plan to use after rounds

Don't leave it in a wet/damp headcover after a round. It will rust

And also I guess another question is is it okay to leave it in your car over night? I live in Florida so it never gets very cold and sometimes gets pretty hot but I'm just curious as there's are all habits I may have to break

I don't think leaving it in your trunk will be detrimental, however I'm not sure exactly how humid it gets down where you're at.

Provided you keep it oiled and wipe it down prior to stowing it in your bag it should be protected.  I highly recommend Eezox.

During the round I'd recommend keeping an eye on it to make sure you don't pick up sand or chemicals, maybe a wipe down with a towel before putting back into the cover. Chemicals can eat the finish pretty quickly so you should be observant of that. Oil Cloth post round to clean it of debris and any chemicals, put it in a clean and dry cover. Occasionally give it some Eezox and wipe it down.

I'd say keep it out of the trunk if you can. Trunks aren't always air tight and can be prone to moisture, which will certainly not help keeping carbon from rusting.

I game the same putter and also live in FL. I often leave it in my garage or car without issue. Always wipe it down during/after a round and then spray with silicon lubricant. It protects the putter perfectly and it dries after applying which is good because it won’t attract sand/dirt while playing.

I researched this topic a ton and this is the maintenance I found to be the best.

My sister is in Destin.  Was just down in October for her wedding.

The oil cloth is nice but using eezox is appropriately more preventative.  You'll find rust will be always trying to creep on your wand.  

There's nothing more sexy than finding an old carbon Cameron in the wild that's been appropriately taken care of.  Eezox will be your best friend.

I'm not sure if its the same thing but I use a silicon infused gun rag on my carbon steel Byron (put a link to one below).  Haven't seen others mention this but I recommend wiping it down with one of these prior to playing, particularly if things are damp such as an early morning round.  It provides a bit of a barrier, water will bead up a bit.  Have gamed my Byron for 10 years now and it has only very minimal spots of rust.

Lastly, I found the Tei3 face to be VERY susceptible to scratches.  When new or freshly refinished, it is mirror bright finish, like highly polished copper. I had a Newport 1.5 Tei3 I got refinished about 15 years ago and ended up selling because I couldn't bring myself to mar that beautiful finish.  Which I had kept it, would be worth 2 or 3x what I sold it for now.

I agree with much of what has been said here already.  Eezox is a very good product for short term care (when you are playing a lot) but I wouldn't use it if you are going to store the putter long term (if you throw another putter back in the bag for awhile).  The Eezox has been known to eat away at the paintfill if left on for long periods of time.
To me, baby oil is too greasy and it picks up dirt and fertilizer off the greens.  The best thing I have found is Food grade or Electrical grade silicone sprays (CNC makes a good one). Do not use silicone sprays like WD40 (must be food grade or electrical grade).  Sprays like WD40 have chemicals that will eat away at your paint and finish. Find the correct silicone and spray it on the putter surface, give a quick wipe with a micro fiber cloth and you're good to go.  It dries to the touch and leaves behind a protective finish.  Do this after each round and you will be fine.
As mentioned, NEVER leave the putter in a damp cover.  If you get a little rain or dew during your round (or it's just flat out humid and your cover gets damp/moist) keep your putter as dry as possible and store it in a dry cover.  It is well worth the investment to pick up an additional cover or 2 off eBay.  I keep a spare cover in my bag in case it starts raining while I'm playing.  Trust me, if you forget and leave your carbon putter in a wet cover over night, then the next time you play and pull your putter out of its cover will be an experience you will never forget.
Live and learn.  ;)

I just picked up the same putter in a long neck this year, I'll recommend the silicone spray. Give it a once over with the spray and a microfiber cloth before and after each round, and wipe and moisture during the round and you'll be fine. Plus a single can will last an eternity. I also wouldn't leave it in the trunk because you just never know.

Do you mind sending a link/picture of the exact silicone spray.  Knowing me, I'd buy the wrong thing and ruin the two I own!
