On the guide removal use a box cutter or dremel tool and scar down on the guide foot through the wrap finish, make sure not to nick the rod with the knife. Go slow, take your time, as you get into the material you’ll be able to peel it up and off.

Grip, use a heavy rasp then sand paper and on to some very fine wet and dry. Again go slow, don’t get into the blank.

I don’t know how old the rod or what glue was used but I would try soaking the seat in warm water to see if I could loosen it up and slide it off, if not try a dremel cutter or just cut the seat off, your rod will just be a little shorter.

As for hand turning while dying the flex coat, you won't like the out come.

I’m sure others will add some of there suggestions, good luck.
