I just thought I'd share pics of a recent pick up off eBay. I didnt take before pics, but it was in great gamer shape but typical fading to the finish on the oil cans especially considering almost 15 years of age. This one has outstanding mill chatter and now has a plum brown finish that is real close to the oil can look. Took about 2 hours start to finish to remove oil can, clean up a few small nicks, and refinish. Hope y'all like it.

The finish looks very nice but you need to clean up that paintfill.

Updated photos with paint fill. The colors are silver, pale yellow, and tiffany blue. Hard to distinguish the yellow and silver from white in the pictures because of the flash, but it looks pretty good in person.

So what was the process to end up with that finish?  It looks great, please share the steps from start to finish.

The usual materials: fine grit sandpaper to remove a few nicks on the topline, steel wool and flitz polish to get the carbon steel uniform and ready for the finish, degreaser to clean the head before heating the it, and birchwood casey plum brown refinish. I would repeat the process of steel wool and clean/degrease, heat, apply finish about 3-4 times to get the look I wanted.

I was too depressed to paint fill after the bama game, so I finished it today. Tamiya paint, toothpicks, acetone, and an old cut up t-shirt to remove the excess paint. Just a side note, the head was really pretty clean and has beautiful mill marks, so I kept the sanding to a minimum.

That is a great looking flat stick, and the colors that you picked for the paintfill add great accents.  I hope you putt well with it.

I've seen a bunch of DIY finishes, but that is as good as any I've seen as far as an oil can look and certainly waaaaaay better than most, congrats.

Quick question about the Plum Brown. The bottle says to oil it up overnight after applying the finish. Do you do the paint fill before applying any oil? I'm assuming paint fill first? I've got my 15 year old gamer polished up and ready for the brown.

That is beauty.

No better retail putter ever made than the AOP Newport in my opinion.

Paint fill, let dry, then oil as needed.
