Wet sanded, buffed and polished all the shells. Sorted through tons of Cleveland lugs to find the best, then ultra sonic cleaned all the hardware and hand polished each piece.
The shells themselves were structurally fine but the wrap had a lot of gouges in it which I still couldn't get all out as they were deep into the nitron wrap. Just another normal kind of rehab that I do.

So you wet sanded, buffed and polished the jet black (nitron) wrap? That's amazing. I've seen posts where that was done on a BDP set-up, but I might have thought that impossible on the jet black wrap. Kudos! Looks great.

Gorgeous!!! What materials or products did you use to wet sand, buff and polish?

Mike
600, 800, 1000, 1200 grit wet/dry sand paper
3M Perfect III power buffing compound on a course foam pad or lambswool pad. The lambswool pad is more forgiving but takes longer as it doesn't build up as much heat as the foam pad . You have to be careful with the foam pad as it can burn the wrap if not kept wet enough or moved cross the shell fast enough.
Then final power buff with black foam pad and Maguires No6 Cleaner/Wax

That is about it other than it takes a long time to do but the results are worth it in the end.

I am in the process of starting another rare Rogers kit that will get the full treatment like this one. It is a 12 x 20 Champagne Sparkle bass drum kit with a 12 and 14 FT. Rare bass drum size.

Wow! That sounds like a lot of work, but it sure paid off. That wrap looks like black glass. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome results! Did you hand wet sand or use a sander of some kind (if so what type?) Cheers.
