RE: [Rollei] Damage to a TLR WLF on disassembly



Well, I'll take a long close look at the WLF on my "T" this evening, but
I'm *very reluctant* to try to disassemble it and cause some damage as
the WLF is in superb condition (with the gray leather).

Does anyone have the Rolleiflex "exploded view" charts that are
advertised on eBay? Probably a good purchase if they are accurate.

What part of the WLF is damaged on disassembly? The only part I can 
think of are the two long rivets that hold the left and right side of 
the back plate to the sides.
