You will be surprised at all the little clips and connectors and such you'll get when you deconstruct that tent.
I did that to one of my old ones a couple of months back. Got some good material to practice on, the floor of the tent was the blue tarp type material and good for under the hammock/tarp to use as a floor and all those clips and such.
+1 on this..... That rubber core gets brittle and useless over time. You can buy some shock cord at a lot of places on line very inexpensively.
