Thank you for your replies.
I stripped the "metalic spray paint" off this camera to find the wood somewhat dry but in decent shape and it had a fairly appealing wood grain. I decided not to stain it but have rubbed it down with lemon oil. The tone of the wood turned to a "strawberry blonde." I sure would like to know how this camera looked when it was originally sold. I wish I had three or four more of the obscure cameras beacuse it is exactly the sort of camera that I need in my work.

I have seen a picture of one of those twin 4X5 Keith cameras. It was cool.

Anyway,
Thanks again!
