I got the parts that were out for zinc plating. Nice job and fair price by the way.
Here is a before vs after. I will post more pics later.

Ok. I took off the clips. *snare roll* ... Success!

As you might notice in the pictures, I put tape arround the crack to keep the wood clean. The glue that overflowed when clipping dried on the tape.
After 24h+ I removed the clips and tape easily. The surface is almost completly clean, just a thin line of glue on the crack (I will clean it later).

Does it look good to you?

Next step will be the outsite repair. I have a tiny bit of White marine pearl but it does not cover all the damage. Part of it was broken when the previous owner damaged the tom. I thought in cut a little piece of wrap close to the bearing edge to make a surgery but in the end the damage would be even more noticeable, due to color and pattern differences. I guess I will improvise...

Fantastic work so far! I've enjoyed following along on the restoration. I can't wait to see the completed product when it's done
