looks like oxidation, or first signs of rust. does it have any coloring to the spots?

When I first look at the back with the spots, it doesn't appear to be rust. I didn't touch it though so I can't tell you a texture of it either... so that's my awfuly inept interpretation.


So do I have a chance of stripping these back to something consistent and keep it protected?

Thanks PA for your help!

So should I start with soaking them in coke or nail polish remover? Is love to get these started this weekend. The weather looks great for the week ahead here and I'm going to reshaft them too. So the heads will be pulled tonight regardless. Would love to get them.soaking tonight, especially if its going to take a multi hour soak!

Thanks all. Should be fun!

PA is correct. I deal with all grades of carbon daily and he is right on the money. Some grades of carbon are more prone to oxidation than others. I coked a Cameron SD1 overnight and took it out the next morning. I wrapped it in towel before I left for work. By the time I got home from work that afternoon it had nice coat of rust already. :woohoo:


Coke is great if you want to keep the paintfill. I've never heard people using nail polish remover to remove a finish though.

Alright thanks JD! So I'll coke them for a few hours and I might sand them down if necessary.

Will the gun blue from wal mart protect it at least somewhat? I don't mind rust if it doesn't get out of control. Is there any hazmat type thing I need to worry about?

Can/should I coke my other current chrome finish SCOR wedges? Is there any toxicity I need to be concerned with them?

Thanks again all for your info.
