Default 1968 PEARL TIGER EYE - To Restore or Not to Restore???

Hi guys just a few questions about what to do with this drum kit.

It's a 1968 pearl tiger eye in abused condition!

As you can see it is in bad condition and I am tossing up whether to attempt to restore it or not.

All the bass drum lugs are there but only about 1/4 of the lugs for the toms still work.

Rims all exist but are pretty rusted.

And will need new heads.

The tom shells are both in really bad condition.

So any info on where to get lugs, good rust-remover, rims, shell repair techniques, tiger eye rap.... anything! All info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Jack.
