    I would use taller tom arms and lower the two front rack bars as much as possible in order not to hide those nice crystal beat toms, Other than that looks really RnR, which is a good thing, of course.

    I like the how the right (ride) side of the rack came together. I'm not a fan of the snare basket off the center rack tube. Traditional snare stands are great.

    Honestly, if I had it to do again, I’d go with a Gibraltar rack and not the ICON.

    This.

    The 2 front bars just above the 2 bass drums looks the best

    The snare basket was something I have never tried before, It is different and adjusting it is not as easy as I thought, but I do like no legs which is another reason I have become a rack fan, I might go back to a snare stand but this like the rest of this build has become for me pretty cool to experiment. No complaints, yet

    The clear drums look great. As someone who plays bother maple and acrylic drums on a regular basis I believe acrylic drums lack warmth. They are fun to play live, but I cannot say I really liked the results when I recorded with them the couple times I did.

    That Coke Bottle acrylic kit of yours is just flat out classy though.

    I totally agree, show off them toms!
    I've never played acrylic, but they look great.
