Warren,
All of the above is good info even Moby Dick
One thing I would renforce is the important of the finish I personally use flex coat lite on my fly rods and feel 2 or 3 thin coats are better than 1 thick although there is a lot of other stuff on the market.
A trick I have used is mix the 2 parts on a peice of aluminum foil then heat foil under a lamp. The idea is to keep it warm especially in the winter months. I sometimes keep the lamp over the foil the whole time I'm coating the treads and if the wraps are being fussy I'll position the lamp over he threads as they turn until they level out. This also helps get rid of unwanted bubles in the finish. an old drafting type lamp w/ a 100 watt bulb works great . Have fun
