Thread: Mij kit transformation

    Default Mij kit transformation

    Stage one of a kit that I stripped the black wrap off. I知 missing a couple lugs that were broken. All reso side rims and hoop are gone. Now it may become a concert Tom Kit. I値l probably fill the reso side lugs holes outside but leave it show inside in case I wish to drill it out and use it in the future.
    All shells will be painted. Inside and out possibly. I知 thinking yellow right now. It値l be a little slow until I start getting into it.

    Sorting through lugs and parts. I’m short two of the longer bass drum pearl style lugs, two t- handles for bass drum hoop also.

    Looks how my resurrection kit was done. Mine was a CB kit. 22X14 bass, 12 and 13" toms and 16" floor. Mine too had the black vinyl wrap. Came off easy except at the seams. I tried painting mine but I'm not painter so I opted for a "sim wood" wrap and they came out great. Used the kit for rehearsals until it sold last summer.

    I probably have everything you池e missing...rims, lugs, etc.. those are probably standard stencil kit Pearl Style lugs. If you want to PM me what you need, I can dig through my massive stash of old drum parts. It may take me a few days, however. I have no use for the stuff since I switched to collecting vintage Ludwig shells.

    If the wood is decent, staining is almost as easy as paint and gives great results. For the inside, I use automotive trunk paint in the Gray speckle. It痴 almost identical to the stuff Ludwig and Tama used. You may remember the old Pearl Export kit I fixed up a few years back;

    Thanks Bish and N2Bluz!
    I’ve tried the stain thing but this one person who used a veneered wood version inspired me to try it as a painted version instead.
    Testing my artist skills..lol.

    First coat absorbed a lot of paint. 2nd coat looks good but a 3rd looks like it’ll do the trick.

    Not turning out like I really wanted but it is different. I may end up just wrapping these instead.

    I started a vote poll to get opinions at beginning of this thread.

    Hey Olimpass! I voted "use this"... I think it looks unique and I bet it will look stunning under some lights.

    I have painted all the drums yellow.
    I’ve experimented mainly on the 12” tom. I wasn’t happy with the orange color or design. I tried in red but not liking this either.

    Only the black looked better to me plus I got the design down better that I wanted on the drum.

    8ABB1DA5-9853-4976-8FDF-1FABA45C1FC6.jpg

    The only issue is, the red is on the other side of this drum. I have to strip the paint and start over on this.
    I’m ready to just paint it black...lol.
    Maybe I can show this yellow and black design to a printer and get a wrap made. Maybe not with yellow but something else. I have other ideas too besides this....
