I've been working on restoration of some of my rods since last week. I spend a few hours almost every night before going to bed, and have just finished two rods.
This rod (Fenwick HMG Graphite) is finished. I replaced the threads using the same colored Gudebrod's ones without using color preservers. Gudebrod's transparent thread is really beautiful.
I also replaced threads and varnished the whole blank of this rod (Phillipson 64 RLS). I used NCP threads on this one as they look much better against metal tapes.
I have six more rods to finish from now. When in the world can I get enough sleep???
