Default Premier 303 Grey Shimmer

Hi Everyone,

I've recently acquired a Premier 303 kit in Grey Shimmer from a family friend who passed away. I've always been more of a Rogers fan, but this kit has some history and I'm looking to try to restore it to it's former glory.

It's in rough shape. All that's left is the bass drum and one of the rack toms. Looks like one of the tom mounts in the bass drum cracked so he added a Ludwig tom mount and spurs. The chrome is fairly pitted.

My biggest issue is the wrap. I absolutely love the grey shimmer, but it's a mess. I cleaned up the tom as well as I could but the bass drum is pretty bad. It's all cracked and bubbling.

In reading through the forums, I've come up dry. Based on what I've read, rewrapping these is not an option unfortunately. Does anyone have any ideas on how to clean what's there and prevent it from getting worse?

I'm attaching a pic of what the bass drum looks like today as well as a pic of the kit in use in 1970...

Any help would be much appreciated.
