Who does rangefinder resilvering? (Acutally I think its aluminizing, as
is done with telescope mirrors.) Ed Romney (of do-it-yourself camera 
repair fame) mentions this in several of his Leica repair manuals,
but I've not come across a repair person who will. When my secondary
RF image went dim on my M3, Leitz replaced the entire RF assembly.
