I have some holes in my back curtain shutter on my Pacemaker. Any suggestions on a fix? Here is a photo. It is on several of the shutter speeds.

Read this thread in the Reflex Help section:

Those look like burn spots.
When repairing a shutter curtain one must keep the curtain thickness equal on both sides so that the curtain rolls evenly. With the holes in the center portion a strip of black cotton or nylon cloth bonded to the fabric side of the curtain the full width of the curtain and long enough to cover 1/8-3/16 inch beyond the holes then coat the hole area with thin coats of carbon black acrylic artist paint or washable black fabric paint until light tight.

This service manual is for 4x5 cameras. I assume that is yours size.
