Re: [Rollei] For a change of pace


Four screws and it's off.  You can give the glass screen a good cleaning
with windex, wich can really help a lot sometimes. Don't do anything to
the mirror except to maybe blow any dust off gently.  These old mirrors
can be unbelievably fragile with the silver practically falling off. 
Good luck.
