    I'm looking for ideas. I'm picking up an OM-4T and I'm thinking of putting new leather on it. I did an OM-1n in gray and I really like it but I have a hard time making a choice without seeing an example first. Anybody do one? I'd love to see pics. (OM-4, or -3 or 4t) Champagne version would be especially great. How about repainted bodies too? I'd love to see that as well. Sorry for those who think such things are sacrilege, if so, please avert your eyes.

    There are 2 way's: do and redo or change the color in PhotoShop and experiment.
    Afer that you will need to find right color leather.........

    Or: more time consuming: make an anlogue pic of the camera and have it printed a dozen times or so and use felt liners in diferent colors.

    Good luck,
    Peter

    Yes, thank you. I was just looking for pictures of what others had done, I know there are ideas that may not occur to me but I might like nevertheless.
