Default fibes snare

here is an early 70s fibes I have had awhile was chrome wrap. material avail that resembles chrome is JUNK. I wanted to maintain metal wrap so I used actual copper sheet about 24 guage came out very nice. also installed pursound wires.

Wow, that came out quite nice! How much did the copper run you to wrap the shell?

The garage mates are swell as well. Don't see too many Toronados.
