Re: [Rollei] Rollei leather

To repaste leather and to get it smooth is not easy. I tried it a lot of 
times and - as I am not so experienced - the results were not so nice. You 
need a very experienced guy to get decent results.

Try to remove the leather carefully and then clean it and also the body 
with alkohol or cleaning gasoline carefully.
The original glue Rollei used in production and also for repair and which 
is still used in repair shops is Pattex from Henkel company.
