Hooray!  I finally shot my first 100' on a Bolex EL and I don't wanna mess things up now :)

Two minor question... I used daylight spools and loaded it outdoors.  Was inside a car in heavy shade at the time.  Do I follow same conditions in unloading?  I do have a changing bag if I need to but suspect I can do it in a darkened room and be OK but would appreciate confirmation.  Second question... do I need to put a piece of tape of some sort on the end to keep it from unwinding?  Or just leave it loose when I put it in the can?  This is Kodak 50D if that factors in somewhere.  Thanks, Tom
