Thanks again Wayne, Kim I found a canvas stile drag washer to replace the broken leather washer, I also rubbed the metal washers on wet & dry sheets, started with 600 then 1200, then 2000, then 2500, the drag is really smooth now, as you can see the posts & foot had a lot of corrosion on them, so they look a bit old & rough, although i did spin them in the drill smoothing them of with the wet & dry cloth as well, also buffed the plates, they look much brighter now, the decal was damaged, & also lifting, so I took it out cleaned the old glue of off the back, then used supper glue to set it back in place, it had a couple of creases in it, also a little of the decal was missing, I think I placed it back in the same position.
     I reversed the old mono, first running it through a detergent cloth, then through a wet cloth, to remove all the dirt & salt, then place it on with the outside on the inside, really looks much brighter now, almost like new, I am very happy with the restore considering its age, thanks again Wayne, cheers Don.

Me forget to mention, there is a spool of new braid, in one of the pics, power Braid, fishing corner, 16 strand 60Lbs-0.29 of a mm thick, ideal for jigging, really soft & smooth & thin, only down side to it, a mate brought it through Alibaba, they wont trade using pay pal, & I dont like quoting card numbers on the internet. keep well stay safe cheers Don.
