Default Re: Have You Tried A Restoration Technique That DOESN’T WORK?

Forgot to mention, My kids are all grown and gone and sucessful,
and, I'm not married. I have a fabulous G/F. I had these 2 vintage kits in my closets I aquired by fate. She suggested I display one in the livin room. I started a search for vintage sonor teardrop and ended up here. My brother gave to me. I also have a 68 sky blue pearl that belonged to Cliff, he claimed they were actually ringo starrs actual drums. I play em many a time in his liivin room. He died and I bought em from his son for $600. I will be restoring them someday when tears stop flowing everytime i think about restoring them.
