  1. In a well-ventilated area, spray the bass drum with primer. Let it dry
  2. Spray the drum in the color of your choice. Let it dry
  3. Line the piece of glass up over the top of the drum. Note where the lug nuts (metal bolts) are on the drum, and place a clear anti-scuff pad on the glass, directly above each lug nut. This will prevent the drum from scratching the glass, but also prevent the glass from sliding around on the top of the drum
