Resurrecting not Restoring an old Ludwig Snare Drum.

I've had an old Ludwig '30's I think Solid Snare drum for quite a while so I decided to resurrect it as I only had the shell and lugs..These lugs don't have inserts and 2 of them were stripped out.. After much deliberation and no real help from so called drum restorers I decided to use longer tension rods into wall plugs inside the lug and it works .. Got some old solid wood hoops with WMP inlay some hoop claws and so far so good.. now I've got to fit the wires and an old Ludwig throw off I had lying around if I can wrap my head around that.. oh it had green painted diamonds on it when I got it so I painted metallic green over it and striped the edges.. Sounds Good..
