Got a rod handle kit with cork and real seat to put on a rod I already have. This is my first "rod building project" and want to put it on a rod. I need to file out the handle to fit my blank. After I do this is there anyway to get the cork on without removing the hook loop? Also I see on all of my rods that I currently have some sort of bushing (rubber/plastic) but have not read or found replacement bushings. Is this something I need? Any tricks for removing the old handle/seat besides sting them in boiling water to loosen the epoxy? Any other things I'll need to do?
