    Great job - they look YEARS younger than before!

    As said, a white, coated, reso on that will look superb, and I'm also in agreement on the hoops - sand them, repair any chips/missing parts with a small amount of wood filler, and then blast them a nice gloss black and they'll look great. Much nicer than steel hoops.

    Don't worry too much about the pedal clamp plate - it'll do it's job perfectly well and you're not going to see it anyway.

    If you're not afraid of cutting hardware, I reckon you could/should cut down a boom arm and mount your ride from the kick drum. Tripod saving on the floor, weight saving if you're going to be gigging them - especially with the lump of a stand you're using in the pics (I have a book like that, and it's a heavy old thing!)

    Kinda like this;

    I have mounted ride like that before, but seems it's to close on a boom- to far away on a straight stand! But cutting the stand would be correct way to do it, the foot of pipe running through the kick looks stupid! Now, yours on the other hand look amazing! Super clean , and that Reso make the whole thing even better! Did you buy that or custom print? I give yours a capital WOW!

    The picture I posted it not my kit - it was just an example of what I was illustrating. You can cut more than one pipe - you don't need to have the entire length of the down pipe running inside the kick, but then, you can't see it anyway unless you're using a clear head on the front, which judging by your pictures, you aren't.

    However it was only a suggestion - it's your kit and you can choose whichever way you like to set it up The suggestion was only there as a means to clean up the overall look, as well as remove a tripod from the floor

    Yeah, yeah it's all good! Cutting the pipe is def. a good idea! And I'm sorry to hear that's not your kit. I'm trying to mimic that low clean look, and all the stands muddy it up! I may put ride on w/ tom stand and 18" crash through bass drum. That would eliminate 1 stand! Thanks

    I've put my ride in my kick for years. I bought a small Gibraltar arm and didn't have to cut anything.

    I think the boom is only 12-14 inches. It's not knurled like the regular arms. The pipe is shorter as well.
