I ordered one over Thanksgiving weekend (woohoo! saved like $0.30...) and it arrived yesterday. It's a nice pen. Clearly wants to be a PGS but I'm ok with that. And the nib is a nice writing, no frills, fine nib. Is it just me or has Jinhao gotten a lot better at nib quality in the last year or so?

My yellow is here.  It's a beautiful, soft pastel, not a school bus or Pikachu yellow.

 

I tried drawing/releasing water and it did that fine… but the water came out blue!  
 

I guess they really do test their pens.  Now my dilemma is, what ink to use?

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

My Jinhao 82 finally arrived, I got the pastel blue with gold trims.  The pastel blue is really really pastel, soft looking.  

When I first cleaning it, blue inks come out, seems like recently Jinhao do test all their newer pen / nib, I've blue ink come out on Jinhao 80 too.

 

The nib is very very polished and shiny, which is quite good looking in the 2-tone colour.  I meant the nib face polish here.

Checked the nib under loupe, seems to be aligned well.  Writes quite smooth the first time, without need of adjustment.  I would say the ink flow is on the drier side.

 

When capping and uncapping, here's the place I can notice that this is indeed a cheap pen feel, there's some sort of vibration can be felt that make me feel the price point of this pen.  I mean, is nothing big deal, just a faint feeling.  For comparison, capping and uncapping on a Kaweco sport, Jinhao 992, X159 felt better.  Built quality of JH82 I would say is overall quite good.  I think X159 (and even the 992) gives me a better feeling quality pen.  I'm liking the Jinhao 82, great little pen.

Just following suit to try to create more of the ‘exclusive’ and/or ‘limited edition’ Sailor Professional Gear Slim look with otherwise oh-so-ordinary, plain-coloured plastics:

Hmmm, I don't know about the barrel finial, but it looks like the cap finial is held in place by a screw and (4.5mm 5.0mm diameter?) nut. However, the inner cap liner is in the way of using a tool to immobilise the nut, so must be pulled out before the nut can be accessed to remove the cap finial and swap them around between pens; and I don't have such a tool.

@A Smug Dill I've seen picture in reddit where they swap the cap finial and barrel finial (not the process, just the final result).  It looks soooo gooodddd.  You need 3 pens for them to look really cool.

 

Colour 1 - cap

Colour 2 - barrel

Colour 3 - both finials.

 

for your 2 pens, if you can swap the cap finial (the barrel finial remains), it would look good.

Yes, they look quite nice.

On a sacred quest for the perfect blue ink mixture!

Well, mine writes.  But a little off-and-on reluctantly; maybe I need a wetter ink than InkVent Ash.  It's a pretty pen, but with two Delike New Moon pens from a previous purchase, I'm not getting any more 82s.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

(My wife turned out to be the first ‘client’ of such, to nominate and claim her ‘favourite’ combination of components out of all the Jinhao 82 pens we have here. I guess I'll make do with the remainder.)

 

Spoiler

OK, here's my ‘reciprocal’ contribution, on account of the inspirations, suggestions, and tips I got in this thread that gave me the confidence it could work, if only I could figure out the method(s). A large part of the challenge was that I only knew the desired outcome (is achievable, demonstrably so offsite), but didn't really have a map or schematic for what I was working, never mind the specifics of how — techniques and the sequence — I would work with (or work around) the parts to get there. Let me now give you (or anyone who is interested) the map and some pointers, save you some trouble, so you can focus your energy on figuring out your how, and formulate a plan. For those of you with more repair and/or tinkering experience than I do, that should be easy, without nearly as much risk as my own fumbling entailed.

 

This should adequately illustrate what you are dealing with, if you choose to go down that path yourself:

They look nice, but I think maybe just switching caps will be as much effort as I want to make.
