    Did you repair the snare strainer assembly or did you find a replacement? I’m debating whether to keep the 1st gen FF because I prefer my Ian Paice Signature snare in sound. I also replaced the dreaded bow tie bass tension rods what a pain in the a.. they are! Im keeping my MLX (I think I’ve claimed this countless times before) anyway good luck on the restoration project.
    I think the spurs are fine as are the lugs (Need to inspect). I had the FF cradle TiG welded, shaped & re-drilled & it is now as good as new I will probably include it with this kit

    Thank you Looks can be deceiving though......... Has quite a few issues which I will address The BD Batter Hoop needs re-spraying & quite a bit of paint correction needed. Both of the Tom Arms will need replacing as they have quite a lot of play in them. Looking forward to getting stuck into it though.
    I also have a MK1 Free Floater which I may include with it when I put it up for sale
