Default Refurbishing Old Bamboo's

Hi all I am new to this forum, and I was just wanting to know how many of you have refurbished an Old Bamboo? I am in the middle of rebuilding one for my husband, and it has been a total pleasure to feel the bamboo, and see the lusturous boo come out from behind all that old, varnish. I surendered the old cork, and reelseat, and bought a new Fine Grade Portegese cork and a Batson Nickel Silver Reel seat w/ Abolonya Birl Insert, and am finishing the snakes with Scarlett Silk, and the Stripping Guide is a Red Scarlett Colored Agate, Scarlett was choosen since he is a former Marine, and a disabled U.S.Marine Veteran, I cant wait to finish it and place it in his hands to fish for the first time. It has a real nice action, and a 5-6wt.
