Not bad. I am not sure that the attachments are the same, however. I have the D, which is the metal field camera, not a wood camera. There was a single plate on the back and a pair of plates on the front that are screwed together with some very tiny screws with the bellows sandwiched between. I basically ripped the old material off, it was very thin and papery, and I then used acetone to clean off the old glue and stuff. It was a little bit of a project, but not all that bad. I also needed to do just a little trimming in the front, where some extra material was left, but it was very easy to do.
