Here is a rod that I'm rebuilding for a customer that he has picked the colors for the wrap and I chose Fuji guides.

Nice! Is that an old GatorGlass blank? My hats off to you for keeping your workspace so clean. I have pieces of thread everywhere.

That was taken before I applied the first coat of epoxy. I just finished the first coat this afternoon, I'LL take pictures when it is finished.

The rod building area looks clean after I cleaned it up, but it was a mess before Smiley. My reel work area doesn't look so good, I need a bigger are to work, but since we are going to move next year I"m not going to mess with that.

Fuji and the blue is Fuji also. The customer wasn't particular about the guides but I told him I only use Fuji on light to MH rods. He was good with that.

It will look even better when I finish the 3 coats of epoxy. It was a bear to doable wrap the guides over the decorative under wrap. I would have preferred to use plain wrap.

Can you post a picture of one of the guides, with wrap, close up? I'm curious to see what you did there, but can't tell from the farther away pics.

Looks pretty sweet from what I can see though!

Ruth took those pictures sorry, but I wrapped the guides up & down. Up meaning I wrapped from the foot to the guide. I will take pictures after I finish the third coat and when it's hard enough to handle.

Thanks Daren. something was said about the location of this post on Jon's site. I did not realize that that was the wrong place for my post. So if you could move it to the proper place it would be appreciate.

In your new place, you might look at a slightly longer work bench, especially if you start doin surf rods. Our work benches are over 15' long for some of the one piece rods we have to build.   Smiley Smiley
