Great start Lenny. A little plastic polish on a soft bristle tooth brush will help clean up the threads. You did good!

So much for winter projects. At this rate you will be done with your stash before the end of fall.

Great job. Those are fun, aren't they? You did the same thing I did, and used some blanks that matched, but weren't crazy about. But I'll bet you end up keeping that pen.

I haven't done this, but people use toothpaste to polish the rails on a new gun. Then they work the slide against the frame by hand. The grit acts like fine sandpaper to help break in the gun. It might work for polishing threads too. Just put a little on the threads, and screw the cap on & off about 20 times or so, and see if they look any better. It should clean off easy too. If nothing else, at least the pen will smell fresh.
