Replaceing the leatherete is quite easy on an RB without removing the focus knob. The only part I see you'd have to remove is the flash mt and the neck strap lug nuts so you can get under em.

Micro tools n some other sources on the net have the stuff in self stick n many colors. Use the old leatherete as your templates n have fun.

I hope you'll post some pics of the finished product?
