Only tricky part is to shift focus scale ring after it. It requires drilling three new locations to where three holding screws will screw in.
Those three screws are extremely small...
I've found Brian's guide https://rangefinderforum.com/forums/...4&postcount=15.

My cunning plan is to have a very skilled friend who is insanely capable of dealing with tiny screws to do the job. He doesn't know this yet, but he owes me...
