    So the pic on the right, was the ebay photo. Looks reddish pink, right? Unbox them, man, so much nicer as you see on the left. Some kind of tobacco fade. I hope pics uploaded correctly--first time trying. I am going to take them to a furniture guy. On the advice of Brent from PDP. I'd like to see what they think about salvaging the lacquer. I'm not sure if I want to put the work in for that though. And if you screw up sanding, ouch.

    I am getting pretty lucky with finding "original" style lugs for these drums. I was able to get a great deal on ALL 16 bass lugs and spurs for $125, ALL new off of a damaged drum. I'm getting there, have purchased more lugs, piecing it all together. A lot of stuff coming this week. I plan on starting on saving the lacquer finish. Found a great video to go off of.
