the shell was pre cut so all i had to do was edges, sand, and holes before the wrap went on. it took probably about 3 to 4 hours. i could have done it faster but i wanted to be extra careful cause i liked the idea so much

Does it play itself or do you need a planchette?

i actually bought a light solid colored piece of that stuff that you use to finish counter tops and then had a company here in my town do the design tranfer onto it. the couter top stuff is a little thicker than regular drum wrap so it was a little tricky getting a tight fit around the shell but it worked out really nice. and to get it to glow i bought glow in the dark paint and VERy carefullt painted over everything that wasnt black (like the letters and all that stuff) i made sure i spend the extra money to get the completey clear glow in the dark stuff so it wouldnt have that yellowing tint.and since the counter top finish isnt as shiney as most wraps i just finished it with a clear coat ( being really careful it didnt run or bubble) if you ever wanna do a unique drum wrap on your own kit on a budget, definetaly look into counter top finishes. theres tons of differant option and its basically just an extra thick drum wrap. but the extra thickness doesnt effect the sound.
