Pelikan Pencil Conversion

This project has been sitting on my bench now for close to a year.
I was sent two old pencil bodies and asked to convert them to take Parker refills.
Like any time you are using old parts there is a risk.
We tried my first idea on a green one that was a common color and I ended up with a bunch of bits. Bad day.
So that is why this one sat on my desk for so long trying to come up with a idea that would still have a complete pen at the end of it all.
One day like many of my projects a solution just hit me and this is what I ended up with.
