    What happens if you process C-41 color negative film in B&W chemistry? Do you get any images at all?
    If you have an example I would love to see it.

    This should be in some kind of FAQ or so. You get BW negative image on heavy orange-brown mask. Prints quite OK on hard paper.

    Developed in Rodinal + table salt, then re-developed to a colour negative using a colour developer after a fix and bleach (in that order)

    The rodinal- peroxide shot is interesting. How much Hydrogen Peroxide did you use?

    1+100, 1 hour semi stand iirc, 20ml per litre of 3%, fix only (bleach bypass, colour image would be too thin to print or scan decently).

    I'd recommend less time, image is a bit dense iirc.
