That "New Skin" will give your camera a real rad. look Bob. My experience with beautification took a slightly different approach and the results were , shall we say, unique.
I picked up an Argus Brick on ebay for $1.00. Couldn,t resist the sales pitch "Its older than dirt". And it was!
Got a fake gator skin purse from the local thrift store ($1.00) as my new cover and used the old leather as a template. Bit of cleaning, bit of glueing and VOILA". Brand new brick! Fun project that only cost me a few bucks.
