    I have a Newport 2 I sent to the custom shop a couple years ago. I was thinking of sending it back in to have some of the fill colors changed from blue to white. Has anyone ever tried this? I wonder if they would make me pay for a restoration and then repay for all my stamps I have on it, or would charge for the re-coloring?

  2. Depending on the contingent you talk to, there will most definitely get a few conflicting opinions on this subject… Generally, 3 main viewpoints. You’ll get:

    1.) The purists who would argue that any changes to a Cameron putter be done by the Custom Shop.

    Generally they are speaking from a re-sale value standpoint, in order to ensure as much return on your investment as possible. They
    would send their car to the custom shop for an oil change if they could. While I tend to agree with these guys for high-end putters &
    Tour sticks, OTR putters & older stuff generally doesn’t need the attention of the Custom Shop, or the price tag that accompanies it.

    2.) The folks who think Scotty is an evil villain, hiding in a secret lair within the rocky Monterey peninsula, plotting ways to destroy
    the world with “over-priced” putters, and branded junk.

    These guys ironically own at least one “over-priced” putter, they will NEVER cave in to the Custom Shop, regardless of the situation.
    They would argue that for the price, you could very well buy a new or new(er) version of the putter you already have. While I can’t
    dispute that, I wouldn’t send my 009 anywhere else for a restoration… THAT would just be irrational.

    3.) The people (myself included) who embrace the Custom Shop when necessary, but also have found an incredible amount of joy
    and passion for doing work yourself!

    ESPECIALLY if all you are looking to change is the paint fill, I would recommend taking a stab at it yourself! It is definitely not as
    hard as you think, and is certainly the most cost-efficient. Worst case scenario – you screw up everything… the Custom shop will still
    do work on your putter, as long as no other cosmetic changes/alterations have been made to your putter. (other than the paint fill)

    Long story short – do whatever you think is best… Unless we’re talking like a NP2 Timeless, or a Toolbox putter of some sort, I would highly recommend giving the paint fill a shot at home. Who knows, (like me) you could fall in love with restoring putters, and it could lead to another completely awesome hobby!

    It's quite easy to do your own paint fills, and fixing mistakes is just as easy. Watch a couple vids on YouTube, buy acetone, paint, and applicators on Amazon, and be patient. Each step can be performed during commercial breaks while watching golf.

    Good luck.

    I like to do paintfill myself using Testors paint. Many guys that I know on TCC do it themselves.

    I’m also a purest. The custom shop did the work the first time, and if I have it done, I’ll have them do it again. It’s nothing special like a 009 or gss or anything like that. 2012 Newport 2. When they released them in black for those couple years.

    If you just pick up a new grip and headcover the paintfill is free...
  7. I have a Scotty Cameron Futura X it has 2 20 gram weights on top of the putter head in the back of the putter head. The putter also has 2 15 gram weights on the bottom of the pattern in the front location. All of these weights came with a little red decoration plastic peace in the center each one of them. That little red plastic piece in the center of each of these weights have came out and got lost except one of them. Is there any way that I could get the red plastic pieces to go back in the weights without having to buy the whole weight?
