Re: look what just arrived...
Just a suggestion but I would go white silk on the guide wraps with a fine 5 turn tip of Kelly Green but test a few on the butt where it'll fall under the cork to get your colors right. Save the gold for the cork wraps and ferrule wraps. Definitely invest in a razorwand and try and find cork with a big bore and you may need your reel seat supplier to set you up with a custom bored insert, I'm surprised Kabuto doesn't add the spigot in the butt to accommodate reel seats.
