Default Re: VFW Parade Drum question

Tons-o-rust on the t-rods.......as I knew from the first online photos. I don't care though...I'll do my best with vinegar, rotary grinding tools, wire brushes and WD40 and that will be good enough for me. The shell is a bit of an oddball as in that it looks to have been painted over the holes where the key holder used to be. The VFWs decal appears to have been moves as well. Maybe Weber's Music store (sticker inside) altered the drum before selling it.

I know you will give this drum the attention it needs...You should start a post documenting the detailing/restoring process...

Good luck to you, sir!!

Cheers
