Alas, these aren't patchable pinholes .
Could this possibly be a DIY project? Where does one find the parts & instructions?

Download his book, which has directions for making bellows. You already have bellows frames.

The Anniversary bellows are attached to the front standard with 8 screws, 4 of which may not be visible until the front 3 or 4 pleats are extended. The rear of the bellows are attached to the camera body with 20 #22 or #24 x 3/16 wire brads no longer available. See the service manual:

In my next to last post in this thread
http://graflex.org/helpboard/viewtopic.php?t=6298
I list the materials needed to add a new light tight lining to the existing bellows. That will add 1/4 inch thickness to the Anniversary bellows and the camera will close although you may have to remove the lens depending on the lens in use.
