Reskinning a 1000yen Minolta Hi-Matic F

I had to reskin this camera because all the leather was half peeled off,  thats why it cost
1000 yen so after i got it I peeled them off and i scrapped out the dry glue. and started
to clean the inside. I also brought a 475yen wooden skin for it. I started tracing with an
art knife and got the size correct.

I decided to make one side horizontal and the other side vertical just to see which style
suites the Black Minolta Hi-Matic 7s.

See it? vertical seems better.  When I totally renewed this minolta ill post more photos.
now it needs some soldering to tune it up to use 1.5v batteries (alkaline) since mercury
is illegal now
