My original OM-1 (long time listees may recognize this as the Problem
Body From Hell) has developed pinholes in the first shutter curtain.
i.e. if I lock the mirror up, wind the shutter, remove lens, open the
back and hold the body up to a light, I can see three stars shining in
the darkness.

I get guaranteed light damage on shots where I use use mirror lockup,
but I haven't noticed damage on normal shots (yet).

Can anything be done?

Zuikoholically yours,
