Replacing shutter cloth on a Zorki 4

Hi all!

I have a Zorki 4 in overall good shape and especially like the bright finder (much better than the one in my fed2).
But the shutter curtain has been painted thickly with some sort of laquer paint, its wobbly and doesnt look very trustfull. I would like to change the curtains and perform a CLA. My question is: is it very difficult to change the curtains, and ist it worth the effort (might just by another one for parts with a good shutter...)

Has anybody changed the curtain and could give me some advise?

Thanks, Michael
