There does not seem to be a lot of info, or resources in regards to recovering the speed graphic. I could get leather from camera leather, and I did find the site where the drowned speed graphic camera is restored. However, the camera's old covering was used to fashion a new template which is not an option for me. I was just checking to see if maybe someone had come across a template or made one for their own project. I do think that if i want to go the leather route, with patience and carefull measurements, I will be able to fashion a new cover. I just did not want to waste a bunch of leather in the process.
No need to waste any leather. Just make a paper pattern, you can work with your pattern until you are happy with it, then you can transfer to the leather and go for broke.
