A sad little nelspot made happy again

This was a very long work in progress which was originally intended for a restoration entry for the Nelson build off. I decided it was better to do it right than to do it "fast".

Anyway, here's the story of a sad nelspot who was made happy again.

----------------

There once was a group of sad neglected nelspots who were trapped in the place that shall not be named. Along came a old wanderer who happened across the sad bunch. "Save us please" the nelspots cried. "We're surrounded by evil space machines." The old wanderer took pity on them. "I can't save you all, but I can rescue you and your brother".

So the old wanderer rescued the sad little nelspot and his brother. After a long journey they finally arrived at their new home.




The old wanderer knew that both of the sad little nelspots were in bad shape and needed much care. He couldn't afford to nurse them both back to health so he knew he had to choose only one to attend to for now. He chose the first little nelspot.




"First we're going to to get you all cleaned up" said the old wanderer. So he began the long process of disassembly. He was sad to see the amount of neglect and abuse the little nelspot had endured in the clutches of his captors.




After struggling through the layers of dirt, grime and rust, the old wanderer was pleased. "Well little nelspot, you have a heart of gold under all of that dirt"




The old wanderer was not blessed with many riches but took pride in his work and knew that he needed to make the sad little nelspot happy again. Not the temporary happiness that comes from a can but true long term beauty. The old wandered requested the help of a great knight. The knight approved his request. The old wanderer took the final steps to ensure the knight's chances of success.




"Little nelspot" said the old wanderer, "Don't be afraid. You're off to visit a great knight in the land of KPCS where you'll receive a new coat of armor." The little nelspot was soon on his way.

Some time passed and the old wanderer began to miss his little nelspot. Just then a message came from the great knight. The armor was done and the little nelspot was on his way back home.

The old wanderer anxiously awaited the little nelspot's arrival and finally the messenger brought him home. The old wanderer was very happy to see his little friend again and amazed at the nelspot's beautiful new armor.




After a bit of time and great care, the little nelspot was back together.

He's a happy little nelspot now, and proud to show off his new found beauty.




"Now about my brother...." said the happy little nelspot.

---------------------------------

Ok, so I kind of suck at storytelling... lol. It'll probably get some custom grips and a matching pump at some point in the future.

PS... Thanks Ken for the flawless powdercoating job!

Ah... well I dug them up on peanut butter and posted them a while back. The guy had a dozen or so. I think (hope) some folks here ended up with the majority of them.

Yeah, I put this one together and I think it's almost to nice to use. I am planning on doing something else with the other... some nickel might be in it's future. Definently need to make a pump for one though. Those homemade gray ones barely fit and are about impossible to pump.. plus they look like poo..
