New leather for the Matchmatic?
You what? OK, I'll come clean. I'm in the UK, and the C3 is actually pretty rare here. Not counting the one in Chamber Pot of Secrets, I've seen two C3s, and I own one of them.
One day I must sort out my stiff focusing wheel, and (a) I suspect I'll damage the leather and (b) there's a horrible mark on the rear door. Does anyone out there make leather replacements for the Matchmatic that actually match? cameraleather.com will (assuming they're back in business post-flooding) make C3 leather, but not to match the shades and as they're so rare over here, and - weird that I am - I like the black and beige, I'd rather like to have it looking as smart as I can make it. It's just so evocative of its period. If they were two-a-penny as they are in the US I'd pimp it (in fact, I'd probably cover it in brick paper), but as it isn't...
Any ideas, or should I just go carefully, and grin and bear it?
