Golfbum said:Question I have is how the hell did the dent get in the driver in the first place? Wee bit of anger after a mis hit drive maybe? Hmmmmmmm maybe not your usual 300 yd bomb you talk about?
Small dents, and I mean very small dings can be taken out by sanding, however if you don't know what you are doing you will make it look worse than it already is.
I refinished a driver for a friend, it had a small ding on the top of it from not having a head cover on it. His irons banged against it and put the ding in. I carefully sanded that driver head, then sand blasted it, primed, painted it with automotive paint (With an air gun, not a spray bomb), clear coated it and slowly baked with under the heat lamp. (This driver had a graphite shaft so I had to bake it slowly, away from the heat and baked it 4 times to get it to cure . No damage to the ferrule or the shaft as both were wrapped in masking tape and paper first) When finished it looked like new, the ding was hardy noticeable. I do this at work (I work in the Paint Shop at a major automotive manufacturer) so this was all professional equipment being used. A fine sandpaper is required and sandblasting it sure helped too.
You can do this at home, by carefully hand sanding the driver head, using good automotive touch up paint in a spray can, let that paint dry. Then spray it with a good automotive clear coat spray. Carefully mask off all the areas you do not want to paint before spraying.
Good Luck, hope this helps. If not send it to me postage paid and I will refinish it for a nominal fee.
