    I got a Minolta X370 for cheap, and it works fine, its just that its kind of not been stored properly. The mirror isn't exactly dust free, there seems to be some dust on some internal stuff..

    All the action works fine though, film advance, etc. is good. I just want to maybe take it apart and do an overhaul.

    I have a spare X370 also, which cleanliness-wise is in top shape, just some of the mechanicals don't work.. mainly advancing and rewinding the film.. and the light meter takes forever to give a reading (this is probably due to battery power though..).

    I'd like to have one top notch X370 to work with, as I've got alot of Minolta lenses and accessories to work with.

    Are there any tips or how-to's I could look at?
