Your kit is beautiful. Great job, and thank you for the kind comments.Looking great in natural light! Unfortunately, many of these drums with satin flame wraps lead a rough life! They stain and scratch easily. Over time, dust, dirt, smoke, etc, falls into the surface and must be cleaned from time to time. You've taken such a kit and brought it back to wonderful condition! And, you've rescued a satin flame kit in a rare color! Whether you decide to keep them, or not, you've done a great job on the restoration!
Attached is a picture of my 1967-68 Cusatis 4N that I had back in 2003, along with the catalog picture. I know how much work goes into cleaning satin flame wrap!
Thanks, much appreciated. Scrub a dub dub. White hoops eh? I'm too big of a fan of chrome to do that, although it may look pretty cool.Ray: I tip my toupe to you! Those drums look about 10,000X better than the "before" pictures. They look amazing. EXCELLENT job!! Hey here is an idea for you....White Hoops. Personally, I think white hoops would look so different and cool with that wrap. You could do it on the cheap, too. Just get a pair of natural wood hoops, sand and paint satin white.
