My biggest issue is getting the old eyes and the spinning reel seat off. Any ideas there?
For the eyes, a razor blade or really sharp knife will cut through the epoxy and thread. Do it one at a time then rub it with high grit if you want to smooth it out. Once you have a clean slate you can tape or super glue the replacement eyes before you start wrapping. Once secure, finish with the epoxy, one eye at a time. I wouldn't mess with the tip, though a heat gun *MAY* get that off for you.
Real seat - you have to start from the bottom and work your way up. Butt cap, grips, and real seat will need to slide off the bottom. Then you can replace it in the opposite order. I've only had to fix a bottom grip, but they are on tight, and I would assume it is a PITA to do!
