Anyone have the lowdown on getting the letters out of scotty grip?  I've read a couple threads but it seems acetone (tried), stripper  or razor blade (tried).

I don't have any stripper around, but wanted some info from others before picking up another thing to try.

Any proven strippers, etc that work?  Just bought a new pistolini grip off ebay and wanted to paint it blue.

Thanks.

What are you planning on doing with the grip?  If you're planning on repainting the letters, you can simply use typical paint fill paint, let it dry and wipe off with acetone.  Recently did this with my SC Select Newport 2.

Grip Solvent.

I found this out through trial and error but just spraying grip solvent directly onto the paint filled letter portion of the grip and letting it sit for about 10-15 minutes to let the solvent break down the paint has worked the best for me.

Once the paint loosens up, just scrape it out with a tooth pick.  If you let the solvent sit long enough, most of the letters will come out as one piece.  Repeat with more solvent as needed.  When all the paint is removed, I just wash the grip down with warm water and let air dry overnight before repainting or re-installing on a putter.

I don't really want to paint over the letters, I want them fully removed before painting.

This is exactly what I was looking for.  Something that could work easy enough so the letters just kinda fall out or easily picked out.

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it and will try it out.

Same here, much easier and less time consuming.

Exactly, no need to overcomplicate the process and it produces the exact same look.

Guys, if I wanted to paint over the existing fill I wouldn't have made this thread.  Done both ways, stripped prior applies and looks better.  I made this thread to find a quick way of doing it, which I fortunately now have.

jtitleist12, your method works so thanks for posting it up and answering the question asked.  Simple, quick and effective.

Taking and uploading this picture took longer than the whole stripping process setup.

So what paint works best to paintfill the letters, and what cleanup chemicals are appropriate to avoid damage to the grip?

TaylorMade 2017 M2 10.5* driver
TaylorMade Aeroburner white 3 wood
TaylorMade Aeroburner white 5 wood
TaylorMade M2 2016 3-4-5 hybrids
TaylorMade 7-AW Burner 2010 black irons
Scratch 53* DD and 60*SS wedges
Newport Buttonback putter with custom welded 1.5 neck (or any of another dozen I've built for myself)

I just use Vallejo acrylic paint, but Tamiya or any other should work.

I then just used a little acetone to clean up the excess.

Sprayed a little grip solvent on the paintfill, after 5 minutes of work with a toothpick, here are the results. Worked great and no need to add paint, I like the tour look.

I've accidentally removed paintfill on grips with excess solvent when installing grips so I know this process works. Looks good blank but you also now have a blank canvas if you get the wild hair to paint fill as well. Silver would look nice too like a ping man grip.

Agreed. I really like the blacked out look this grip fits my blacked out Flanigan bilt prototype putter.
