70s-80s Slingerland chrome drum question

Hi drum experts. I'm trying to read a Slingerland chrome over wood 20" floor tom, and am curious if at any time, did they come with interior painted glossy black? I'm guessing not, because I pulled everything apart for deep clean and polish, and the wood where the washers went, are bare. Should I sand this off, and put a wax on it?
2nd question is regarding the chrome finish. It is a little bit scarred, and a tiny pit or two. Is there any way of shining this up better. It was bought to accompany my double bass setup, and the rest of the kit is almost perfect, and I'd like to get close, if possible. Any help one can give would be so appreciated, as DIY projects were never my forte, but, since I have a lot of time on my hands, I'd like to try it myself. I searched out several forums with no luck, so please help me out. Thank you very much.
