    Modifying a Kodak 2A folding autographic brownie

    Hello all,
    Wondering if anyone can shine a light how I could modify a A2 folding autographic brownie so I can fit a polaroid back on it (don't mind what kind of back I put on it as long as it kind of fits).
    The camera's back is very old but the bellows and lens look great.
    I'm new to camera modifications so any specific on models,parts etc. would be a great help.

    Cheers.

    Solution

    For those of you reading this. I found my own answer by chance.
    I found a 8.5x10.8cm Fuji MF Polaroid back.
    This was key because it lets you expose the WHOLE sheet rather than a small square like the Hasselblad back does.

    Basically used electrical tape to slap it on the back of the camera. Checked for light leaks and tried 2 shots, the second being perfect.

    Now I can work on making the connection between the camera and the back a little more elegant.
