Tomorrow morning, I'm sending off a recently acquired Retina IIa to Flutot's Camera Repair for a shutter and rangefinder CLA. Since she's getting all cleaned up, I though it was time for a new wardrobe, so I ordered some new skin from cameraleather.com. I've done a couple of Nikon FM's with their kits and they're really top notch. Anyway, I'm having them make the front door skin in the "Four Petals" cut. My color and material choice is the Indian Red Kid Skin (Goat), seen here on a Leica. This should look real sweet on the Retina! I'll have to get one of Gordy's wrist straps for this one.

The waiting is going to be a killer...
