Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.
If you wanted to stain it there are lots available at any hardware store. For color stains RIT dye works great (i mixed purple and black to match my kit). There videos on YouTube that show how to do fades and bursts. And of course you could still have the finish done at an auto body shop. That would be the best.lacquer finish. Good luck.
