    Bellows repair

    Greetings to all. I have a Kodak Bantam Special that is in need of a bellows repair. It has several pinhole sized light leaks although they appear to be located on just one side of the bellows. Would it be best for me to repair it with some type of glue or paint or have the bellows replaced? Thanks for all the help and advice.

    Replacement is a better long-term option, but short of that the Bostick and Sullivan patch kit isn't too bad.

    For pinholes in fabric lined bellows, I scrub black liquid artist's acrylic paint into the fabric with an old soft toothbrush. Don't let any appreciable thickness build up.
