    Hello Lee

    Gosh sakes pal I am so sorry for this late reply
    somehow I just did not see you
    This is only the second visitor message I have ever received


    Hey man I love my Tempros I have since bought a Coronet kit which is the identical build but in a cool red tiger-ish sort of wrap

    This info is most likely too late to be useful
    But I sprayed the Graffiti remover directly on the shells
    it seemed to me that with the stuff being just a thin liquid
    spraying it on the shell would cause it to just drip right off
    and I suppose it did to some degree ..just be patient

    work outside as I found the fumes fairly nauseating
    not unlike car battery acid


    You will see the stuff start to give the paint sort of a bubbled texture
    I used a plastic scraper and removed the paint clean down to the wrap
    which did not seem to be ill affected at all

    I used a clean rag and water to remove the residual amounts of paint

    GOOD LUCK and keep in touch Kenny

    Hey Kenny - saw the picture of the Tempros I sold you and figured this must be you...at least I hope it is
    I'll be picking up a Slingerland floor tom in blue sparkle that has been painted black, and a search on paint removal led me to your posts regarding the Stage Band save.
    Great job by the way.
    My question is how exactly did you remove the paint? I think I remember you settling on Graffiti remover, but did you spray it directly on the drum or on the cloth?
    Any pointers you can share would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Best,
    Lee
