Spotmatic CLA

Some time ago I saw a reference to a gentleman who did good work on Spotmatics. Seemed at the time like it might have been a "guy in his garage" kind of thing.

Ring any bells with anyone?

For repairs on classic Pentax cameras Eric Hendrickson is without equal.
Here's a link to his website:

I just sent Eric the Spottie II that I bought new in 1972. I would say it needs a CLA since, when you look through the viewfinder you can actually see a line of goo across the mirror from the deteriorated foam.

I just sent Eric my SV and got the estimate back the day it arrived. I'm hoping to have it back soon.
