RRMMX/R²SG2VP
RRMMX=Retractable Reversed Momentum MX RG2T=RSVP G2 Translucent(name credit goes to Guitrum)

A simple mod made up of only 2 pens, that are very common. Approx. 10 minutes -20 minutes to make the mod, all depending on how fast you can cut and make a hole. Let's get started.

Materials:


1. 1 Pentel RSVP (prefferably Med. size)
2. 1 Pilot G2 (any color)
3. toothpick
4. grips(optional)

Tools:

1. x-acto knife
2. pliers
3. tape

Procedure:

1. Take apart both pens, then leave your self the parts shown in the picture

<a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/9769/img0359copyuw2.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/9769/img0359copyuw2.jpg" target="_blank">http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/9769/img0359copyuw2.jpg</a></a>

2. Put the other parts aside, leaving yourself with the RSVP barrel and cap. Cut accordingly, shown by the red lines in the picture.

<a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/5876/img0360copyvn8.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/5876/img0360copyvn8.jpg" target="_blank">http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/5876/img0360copyvn8.jpg</a></a>

3. Put those aside and take out the G2 Inktube, cut about 1cm from the cap. This is about where the gel ends.

<a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/412/img0362copygd3.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/412/img0362copygd3.jpg" target="_blank">http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/412/img0362copygd3.jpg</a></a>

4. Get your cut RSVP cap and barrel. Put any kind of tape around the place on the barrel shown in the picture.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg</a></a>

5. Retrieve your cut end of the G2 Inktube, top G2 barrel part, and taped RSVP barrel. Insert a insert if you have one into the RSVP barrel. Take the cut end of the G2 inktube and then insert it, cap first, into the top G2 barrel part. After this is done, take your taped RSVP barrel and just twist or push it into the open-ended end of the G2 barrel part. It should now look like this.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg</a></a>

6. Now take the back cap of the RSVP, the little black cap, and drill or make a hole. Make sure this hole is big enough so that the RSVP inktube will slide in and out smoothly. In other words, make the hole big enough to slide the whole inktube through smoothly.

<a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg" target="_blank">http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg</a></a>

7. Now, take your RSVP inktube, spring, and toothpick. Pinch or tape somewhere 1.8mm from the writing end of the RSVP inktube to that you can fit the G2 spring in snugly so that it doesn't move when you click. Cut your toothpick so that it is around 1.7cm long, then insert it into the open-ended end of the RSVP inktube. What you should have should look like this.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg</a></a>

8. Now take the RSVP barrel/G2 barrel and insert your new inktube into it. Make sure the toothpick doesn't get stuck on the edge of the G2 inktube cap. After having this done, retrieve your black RSVP back cap with the hole and screw it onto the RSVP barrel. Take out your cut RSVP top cap and just put it on the back cap. make sure the cut end is facing upwards. (For people who want to use a metal tip/tip just sand down the teeth of the end of the RSVP barrel and it should fit snugly, replacing the black back cap. If you have sanded it down too much just use tape to fill the gap.)

<a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/1992/img0367my2.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/1992/img0367my2.jpg" target="_blank">http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/1992/img0367my2.jpg</a></a>

9. Last step, CLICK YOUR NEW PEN MOD, you can add grips on the ends if you want.

Finished Product and COP:



Weight: Ext. BICtory<R²SG2VP<RSVP MX

Length: 18.7cm non-retracted
18.5cm retracted

Pros:
-COG=COP
-simple and easy to make
-wieght is good for beginners and pros
-retractable
-easily accessible
-comes in many colors
-inserts!
-good for infinities, TA's and many other tricks
-feels like one pen, the link between both pens is smooth
-uber stable

Cons:
-looks ugly, to some people
-too light, for really heavy users

This is my first mod and tutorial, hope you guys like it. Give me some feedback. Hopefully, you guys like the high quality pics. Sorry I had to link the pictures, I guess I'm not allowed to post full blown pictures.

UPDATE: new vid on how to put inserts on both sides=

The tip comes out the back part of the rsvp. He also said its retractable so that means it can write mellow.gif

looks pretty good, you'd probably get some "what the hell is that?" remarks from classmates though. COP looks good.

depends, what kind of grips you use, if you don't use grips at all. I've found with one side, the clicking part with grips tends to slip.

it looks easy enough to put an insert in both sides of the mod - like an mmx/nx mmt.

i'd have to say that i don't like the look of it but well done making a new stable mod out of common pens.

Hmm...interesting. I might give it a try sometime but you really should figure out a way to make the front side better.

I made it!! I would post a picture, but my digital camera is broken. Very good tutorial. I love the retractable tip, and it's the perfect weight. I need this after I lost my RSVP MX.

Wow..that seems pretty good but it might be a bit too light for me. Is there any way to add some weight on it?
