Looking for some advice here....I recently acquired a sonor lite shell set with intent on converting it into a small jazz kit - 12,14,18. The 18x18 tom was described as having ~3 inch crack only affecting the inner veneer so I figured it would be simple to cut the shell down to 18x14 for use as a bass drum. Now that I've received the drum, the crack is actually about 7 inches long and is deeper than just the veneer although I cant say if the crack is that deep all the way in. For those of you with restoration experience, is this shell shot or might it do ok with gluing down the crack? I suppose I could cut it down to 18x10, but that's really not what I am hoping for. Thoughts? Thanks!
