I doubt you'll even notice

I did the flashlight test on it, lens looks fine with the shutter closed, but opened it on B (as the back had been open anyway) and the back element looks grubby, but not too bad, reckon it'll come off okay. Will have to have the film out to clean it - hope it's on the back of it! 1/300th won't engage on the speed ring, and the rangefinder is dirty but usable and very complicated. Meter works well enough though, but might try adjusting it. Hopefully unjam the top shutter speed this week and run through the rest of the film next weekend as we are going away. Most of the cack came off with a combination of IPA, WD40 and elbow grease. Overall a good 4 so far.
