A question for someone who has an anamorphic door for a 2c. Does it turn through standard/anamorphic/closed without snagging on viewfinder lens?

Reason I ask, I have an anamorphic door from a 2b, when the anamorphic insert is put in the 2c door it will only fit in the anamorphic position as it will catch on the extruded viewfinder lens in normal and closed positions. It is not an issue as I can change the insert to go spherical but I want to know if the design was changed for the 2c door. See pics.

The lens 'tube' is shorter in the door with the anamorphic system. You cannot add the anamorphic section without changing the lens tube as well. Pulling the 'long' one back and using a spacer may work but it will seriously alter the focus.

Thanks Bruce. I was told about putting inserts in to pull the long lens back. I didn't know about a short lens being used. I'm going to pick up an old door and see what I can come up with!
