Notoriously difficult to do for that camera. Visual Products did one that they were selling for $6000 I think due to the intense labor and "research" involved. They also said they'd never do it again (but money can change their mind probably).

You can try Bernie at Super 16 Inc. and see what he says. Anything is possible if you have time and money. Probably not worth it by any stretch of the imagination however.

Not worth it. Search the archives, we had a very detailed discussion on this with pictures and diagrams a number of years ago.

Best,
