repainting my drumkit. (planning stage)
« Reply #52 on: September 10, 2009, 11:44:16 AM »
Hey guys I'm gonna paint my old fernando drums (I was inspired by http://guerrilladrummaking.com/ :-D) so ngayon, I'm gonna go to Ace hardware at titingnan ko kung magkano magagastos ko sa pag bili ng spray paint. Then after ko i paint ung shells, i'm gonna clean the lugs and hoops and other parts using WD40 and steel wool pero kung hindi ko ma sesave ung rusted parts, i'm gonna buy new ones. Tapos mag papagawa ako ng Custom bass reso head and drum badges kay sir rrkkxx  :-D

This is my drumkit right now. I replaced all the wraps with the Vinyl wraps that i bought from Ace Hardware pero i'm not satisfied with it so i'm gonna resort to spray painting my kit.



This gonna be a fun project and I'm gonna post all updates, pictures and other stuff in this thread. Stay tuned!  :-D

wag ka sa ACE or Handyman bumili ng Spray paints... mahal

sa hardwares or auto supply ka bumili para mas cheaper..... I my self did a repainting job on my kit....


the bass on your right used to be blue... and the lugs a oval shaped.. now paired with the Ludwig kit... thats 7 coats of paints (used Primer, Flat white, Gloss white and Clear)

1st coat - Primer Gray
2nd-3rd coat - Flat white-in order na kumapit yung next coat
4th-5th coat - gloss white
6th-7th coat - Clear finish

and viola!!! finished product...

hindi sya madaling mag chip off... since 7 coats sya...... and I forgot to mention that ni-liha ko pa pala muna yung bass before applying the paints, its much better to apply paint that way... even sa lugs, lihain mo muna para yung chrome part gumaspang para kumapit ang primer paint.... sa hoops power coating talaga dapat dyan, because lagi syang tatamaan ng stick, mag chip off ang paint kapag spray paints lang...

gastos effect ng double bass set up ko...

since kung mapapasin nyo walang Straight Stand yung kit...

I traded it to the Bass (LA Drums) so generic lang....

then

bought 1 - Primer Gray, 1 - Gloss White, 1 - Flat White, 1 - Clear that cost P450

bought lugs at Lazer cost me around P1200

since di pa tapos yung bass, as you can see yung spur generic parin, P1100 pair ng spur that will correspond with the Ludwig spur, ala pa pera pambili eh, need to buy:

heavy duty stands
3 more 18" crashes
1 - China cymbal
Tom Rack Stand
16x18 Floor tom
Fernando Single Pedal to finish this project..

magastos maging drummer talaga mga brothers

Sinabi mo Sir. Mahal talaga magrestore ng kit pero masaya in the end. Konting tiyaga lang. Hindi pa rin ako tapos sa pagrerestore at madami pang kelangan na hardwares. Planning also to change every lugs.

Thanks. At first, stripping the vinyl cover. Medyo mahirap pero tiyaga lang. Yung vent grommet, sisirain tlaga dahil you can't strip the vinyl cover with the grommet still intact. I used a hair blower para mas madaling maitanggal yun cover. Tiyaga lang sa pagtatanggal at dahan-dahan lang para di gaanong masira yun wood. After stripping, needs to sand before applying primer coating.  I did put some wood putty to get rid of some blemishes sa wood. After 1-2 coats of primer, kelangan pa din isand. In between applying coats, it really needs sanding. After primer, applying the paint color you prefer. I used lacquer paint (Pylox spray paint) because I don't have the tools like spray gun and compressor for painting. The fade effect, it needs a skilled hand, and mine is crappy. When your satisfied with the color you want, it's time for the clear coating. In between clear coats, again may sanding process pa din. Applied 2 coats of clear before sanding. Mind you, after applying the clear coats, I have to dry the paint for at least 1-2 days before sanding.  Sanding it, starts from a coarser grit sandpaper down to a finer grit (600 - 2000 grit). And when I sand the coats, I also used water para mas madali at madulas ang pagsasand.  Ang iba, gumagamit pa ng soap. Di pa pwedeng ilagay ang mga lugs and hardwares after sanding. After 1 month pa bago ilagay mga parts, they call it curing stage.  The inner ply of the shell, I applied wood stain, dahil di din ganun kaganda yun shell. Pero kung maganda naman yun shell at maple siya, malamang di ko na siya ginalaw. :wink:  Did all of these processes sa 3 shells I have. Mahal grabe, pero tiyaga lang talaga. Ang importante basta happy kayo sa pagrerestore ng kit kahit matagal siyang gawin. Nakuha ko lang din idea sa isa din forumer dito and reading sa mga forums on how to restore your drumkit.  With regards sa sound it will produce, satisfied naman din ako, observe ko din namn ay medyo, konting improve yun sound. Depende na lang din sa heads and tuning you prefer pati na din sa bearing edges.
