Well I finally got my last piece to the puzzle. I had the original 14" floor cut down to make a 14 x 10 rack tom. I had another 14" floor on order to replace it. I thought I might never see it after DW took over distribution for Gretsch.

Beautiful kit! I'm actually starting to like the chevrons. Passing up the Renown '57s when they were being blown out is a major regret of mine.

Thanks man. The main reason I bought the kit was the Chevrons. 57 Chevy in Red has always been one of my favourite cars. I have a bike in the same colour.

That's amazing. I didn't realize they offered that many sizes in the 57s.

Thanks! The 14 x 10 was cut from a 14 x 14 floor.

Somewhere on the web I saw a kit similar to yours where they combined the two versions of the Renown '57 into one large double-bass kit, and had custom bass drum heads made up in red with the white chevrons and silver "Gretsch" lettering. It was striking.
