Leica M coded mount

My replacement coded mount arrived from the Ebay seller this week.
I couldn't fit it earlier as I didn't have a 00 cross head screwdriver.
However, this gave the paint I used to code the lens a chance to dry. I used some black Halfords high temperature engine paint and Homebase white gloss.
I bought a screwdriver today and fitted it this evening. It took about 5 minutes.
M8 recognised the lens as a 28mm so everything is good!

After coding. I used a very small screwdriver tip to apply the paint.

Mount installed on my Elmarit 28mm v3
