Have you decided on the color for the wrap yet?

Heck no! It's a big decision for me. It's between the mod orange and citrus mod though.

Next step is drilling for the small classic lugs on the 12" tom and drilling the bass drum for the large curved spurs. Then all the polishing. Still deliberating on which wrap to choose. I hope to have that figured out by the time I get all the lugs and hardware cleaned and polished

Speaking of polishing, can you post that "jig" you made up to hold lugs in place while you polish again?
Thanks!

Here's the so called jig I made. It is simply a piece of wood about a foot square. I drilled holes in it for the lug to sit down in to hold it still while I polish it. I dont use it anymore though

Here's what I use now. It's a cloth polishing wheel I attached to one side of my bench grinder. I use this polish sorta like ***lers roughe, but its made to polish chrome. Just stick the polishing stick into the polishing wheel and get it on the wheel, then polish the lug. it really does a fantastic job, and very inexpensive too. Got it at Lowes.

Im planning on redrilling my base drum for the large curved spurs and the small tom for the small classic lugs saturday. Then on to the polishing and deciding on the wrap. Im still leaning toward the mod orange, just haven't made that final decision. Citrus mod is pretty cool and not so many of them out there.

In the end, go with your gut feeling on the wrap. Polls are cool, but, in the end, you're the one behind the drums.
