I am half way through a full restoration. These will be in amazing condition when I am done.
Here is my thread on the restoration.

Thanks guys! They are nearly done. The last project is to repaint the inside. Still debating to use a spray can or brush on. Brushing it on would be more accurate to what Ludwig did but not as clean I suspect as spraying on the same paint.

Nice so far but I wouldn't touch the insides at all. It my opinion it hurts the resale value. Leave mother nature to herself.

Normally that would be the case but I had to make some repairs on the inside. I had some of the scarf joints/plies & re-rings starting to seperate. So because of that I decided to re paint. I can match the mellowed out paint easy though. I only have one date stamp remaining which will stay there.

Nicely done Airborne! Gotta love the 3ply Vintage Ludwigs!! Now get them out gigging for the world to see!

I just finished a full resto (more like a teardown and cleaning) on a '64 Downbeat I scored ridiculously cheap on Craigslist.

Those Ludwigs are gorgeous! Would love to have old Ludwigs like that.

Which one man the wrap finish or the copper lacquer kit? I am likely going to sell the copper lacquer kit FYI or trade for a Sonor kit.
