Oly 35 SPn repair help required
I have a user 35SPn that I got for a great price, but needs some tlc to get it back to top performance. Everything works OK, but there is what looks like a flake of film between the shutter blades and the rear lens element. Goodness knows how it got in there, but it shakes around and I'm worried that it will end up in the blades and cause some damage.
I exchanged notes here with GMan who advised that I would need to take off the rear element - the only way I could see to do that was by removing the lens and mount panel from the body.So far so good, I have gotten that far, but cannot see how the rear element comes off - there are no apparent spanner notches, and I don't see how to proceed.
Apart from that, the top plate is a bit dinged and I'm wondering about stripping the chrome, filling the dings and applying some nice black paint, but I'm concerned about things like the battery test and frame count windows - there is no easy way to remove these and I don't want to even try masking something that small while I spray the paint - any ideas most welcome.
Can anyone help?
