I picked up a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 auto graflex, managed to get the shutter unstuck and operational, the mirror unstuck and working, but need to replace the hood, which is being held together with gaffer's tape. It would als make it easier to clean the GG if the hood were removed. Bag-mag seems to be in ggod shape, I picked up a box of film from Freestyle, so I'm about ready to go.

There are two metal strips on each side of the rear of the hood near the top. These are held to the door by two brackets. Each of the brackets is fastened to the door with two screws. If you remove one screw from each of the brackets, you can swing the brackets aside to release the hood. At the bottom front of the hood is a spring clip attached to the inside of the camera front. Just push this in and the hood will lift off.

Thank you so much, It worked.
