I have a Preppy and a couple Charlies in eyedropper configuration, but they live quietly and safely in my pen cup. Decided to eyedropper my clear/green demo Prera with Noodler's Hunter Green (diluted to ~70%) tonight. This is a pen/ink combo I use every day and regularly carry to and use at work.

 
The Prera is a pen without vices, zero drama... But Hunter Green, in my experience, is pretty rambunctious. So, I may well be setting myself up with an ink incident involving a bulletproof supersaturated rogue ink. I'm a teency bit nervous about it.
 
Flourescent too.

Given that the barrel of the Prera is not a single piece, I don't think it's a pen I'd consider for an ED conversion.  How'd you seal the threads that hold the blind cap and trim ring onto the end of the barrel?
