Do I remove this blue wrapping that came on my truss rod with my martin kit before gluing or just leave it on? Thanks for the help

I'm surprised nobody has responded to this yet. I have never used one of Martin's truss rods, but I would imagine the wrapper stays on to prevent rattling. Is it a two way rod or a single action?

Yes leave it on. It does help prevent rattling and getting glue where it shouldn't be...Mike
