Takumar 83 1.9

I was lucky enough to come across one of this guys but it has some fungus.
Does anybody know how to clean/open it? I have experience opening regular Takumars but this guy is too different. Any suggestions?

PS - Yes, I will contact Eric as well.

I know this is off topic, but is there any chance you could snap a photo of this lens for the lens database? All we have right now is a catalog photo TIA!
