Just get rid of the discolored symbols... And get some cymbals!
I know this is old, but hopefully you're still here! I'd love to do this to my drums, I'm debating doing this or springing for the Drumlite kit... But I feel like the kit is pretty steep for what it is. Do you remember what it cost you to complete this build? Their 5 drum kit is about $300! I think I can buy a lot of LEDs, a wireless remote, a power source, etc. for more like $100, but that's a pure guess based on nothing lol. So am I way off? Or could I build 5 of these, 2 strips per drum (1 top, 1 bottom), for a Benjamin baby?

Yes, it works with beer bottles. You have to give the (liquid-filled) bottle a good thwack with your palm making good contact with the bottle mouth- you're trying to push an air pocket down and into the bottle so you have to form a little vacuum for an instant. In my experience, the bottom doesn't blow out quite clean enough for gluing back on, but ymmv. You can also score a bottle with a glass cutter and then heat and cool, it will pop along the score line- many Ibles for that. Bottles make cool vases, cups, etc. and the necks make good guitar slides! Win-win
Whoa... She broke up with you and now she's rusting at the bottom of a lake? And I thought the '60s were all about free love.
Maybe it's just me, but I think it would be really cool to just leave it as a nut and wear it as is. Of course remove the threads, and ease the edge around the finger hole, and polish it up... But a stainless nut ring is badassenhoffen jah? You could epoxy a washer to it before you work it, that would look cool too. This has inspired me to get some stainless nuts and bolts for my ears... I could fit a 3/4" nut, and have a bolt in it, or I could fit a 3/4" bolt and put a nut on it! That would be huge! I could be Frank N. Stein. Thanks for the cool 'Ible
Digestive tract. I'm the language police. Woot-woot-woot. Pull ovah.
Golf tees work well too, for a larger hole where a matchstick won't work OR to fill the hole entirely and sorta start over fresh.
I bathe mine once a week, every Wednesday! 2 cats in a bubble bath. Yup. Tearless shampoo and a yellow/green scrubby sponge lol. My cats are hairless Sphynxes, and they need regular bathing. Normal cats produce sebum (oils) and it kinda slides out onto their hair and they clean it. Hairless cats sebum builds up on their skin and needs to be cleaned off. And yes, they get pimples sometimes too. Pretty cool,eh?
Glass is harder than steel? I'm not so sure about that, but it's irrelevant. The outer surface of your windshield is not glass- it's a soft plastic that holds the glass together if it breaks. All modern auto glass is laminated, so it's VERY easy to scratch. I would skip that steel wool hack fer sher. If you're driving a Model T with plate glass windows, give er a try.
