    Some years ago, strolling in a yard sale, I discovered this old gear.
    It was dirty, humid and covered with some sort of yellowish fungus.

    I nevertheless paid five euros for this thing to be mine.
    I took profit of the long winter evenings to take care of it
    And now, it is in good place on my shelters.

    Nice cleanup.
    I still have yet to bag one of those.

    My Father was a Rollei shooter but his cameras weren't as old as yours. Nice job restoring it.

    I spent some hours, cleaning, painting and repairing this old gear because I felt that it deserved it.
    In fact it is not work but pure pleasure.

    From Rollei grunge to a thing of beauty.
