37mm pshon lens hood for Agfa Solinar 105/4.5?

Testing out an Agfa Record III, Solinar 105/4.5 that has to be an unfolder for now. Persistent pinholes in bellows. I finally took some black Plasti-Dip (tool handle dip coating), diluted with some solvents and after a few attempts at the corners only, 'painted' all exterior surfaces of the bellows I could reach.

I am wondering how hard it is to find a 37 mm push-on lens hood, or if anyone has made one from junk like empty vitamin bottles.

Thanks

Murray

You could make one, or you might find something with Heavystar on eBay.

Heavystar - thanks - I'll check for them.

I may try the HDPE plastic bottle method also. I have been saving empty bottles hoping to find the right size :O)

Murray,
You might also look at this seller's store:
http://stores.ebay.com/photo-widget
I haven't yet done any business with him/her but they seem to have a bunch of older filters/hoods etc for not too much $.
Might be useful.
Rob

Thank you.

Yes, he actually had an Agfa one, but I don't need it badly enough for $30...makes me think I should list all the crap in my basement on eBay!
