Just occurred to me. Possibly for the first time ever on dfo, the term
"Ground Up Restoration" is appropriate

Jesus, man.
That is rough. Is there water damage? Why is that hole so screwy?

The “wrap” is actually fairly thick stainless steel, so it was trying to spring back to flat as I took the hardware off, so that hole looks even more goobered in that pic of the mount than it actually is. Which is still quite goobered.

No water damage, but that’s the only reason I’m even taking a shot at this drum. If it’s a wash, it’s the most easily replaceable shell, and I’ll get to practice the things I need to get right on the other 2.
