    Seagull 203 rangefinder faded

    Hello All:I recently was given a Seagull 203 120 Rangefinder folder.The contrast between the blue and yellow filters that are used for the rangefinder focusing have faded and I am having trouble trying to focus an image even in bright daylight.Is there any way or method to replace one or both filters that would increase the image contrast so that I can focus accurately?.

    Thanks in advance,

    Doug

    Here is something that might help.

    I tried this on two Kodak Signet 35's, and it works. One went from a fairly dim rangefinder image to a reasonably good rangefinder image; the other went from "there's a rangefinder in this thing?" to dim. Eventually, I'll have to replace the beam splitter on these cameras, as they only get worse with age.
