    Finally completed my great-granddads old Olympic travel rod. I tried to do the same wrappings/colors etc. as the original. I did get some help with the black wrappings all along the rod. Repainted the Olympic symbol and then put a new coat on. Enjoy! Only my second build, so i hid the flaws... or tried too anyways.
