    I only drive that car once a week. The drum has been in there since Saturday. I'll take it out and put it together tomorrow. Too hot to work...90s.

      I'm missing a part on the riding Tom so I won't have the set together until I get the part.

        I'm waiting for the BT3 tom mount. 10-14 days if they have it in the main warehouse.

          It'll be interesting to see how the wood looks when you're done. Most of these kits came covered with a wrap because the wood was not conducive to being presentable with a clear coat finish. Was the wrap in bad shape? It looked like a plain champaign color, which seems fairly benign. Just wondering. D

            The wrap was silver and wrinkled. Got the part yesterday. Assembled today.

                You got the green tint. I had to use purple oil paint mixed in to kill it.

                  I think the green tint is from the grass reflecting on the drums. But even then, I like it. It clearly shows what (with a little elbow grease) you can do to a down trodden kit. If more people would do this, more kids would or could be inspired to drum and make better music.

                  Too many drums are "trashed" because they need a little TLC. Kudos to you Dan for giving a little love to these drums.

                    I moved out my Tama 22" bass and I'm playing these now instead. The bass sounds as good if not better to my 2010 ImperialStar and is about 4" shallower , which means that I may actually be able to get this behind my seat in the vette. In the last gig I played, I had to put the bass drum on the passenger seat.....(no wifey).

                      With used drums, the important thing to look at is that there are no cracks in the shell. Even then, that can also be repaired.

                      The brand is also important. I wasn't 100% sure that these were Pearl until the Tom lug fit perfectly.

                      It was approximately another $20 for the tom mount, and $5 for the Urathane...3 hours of elbow grease, 2 hours of disassembly/assembly and 2 hours of finishing.

                          It is partly weeds. My next door neighbor's is like a carpet. It was yellow a few weeks ago but we got a lot of rain for the past 2 weeks.
