Arca 69 F-Line / Fuji GFX Hybrid

I have just finished the initial construction of the parts necessary to use my beloved Arca 69 F-line camera with the GFX. The camera as adapted will even allow the use of my 55mm Rodenstock Digitar (with limited movements), as well as other LF lenses, though I am not sure the resolution of those lenses is going to be up to par with the 100s. I am awaiting a few more bits from Ebay to allow me to make lens boards to allow the use Pentax 645 and Fuji GF lenses from the GX680 both series with movements. Since the 35mm Pentax 645 is one of my favorite lenses, I am anxious to finish this project up to be able to shoot this lens with the tilts and shifts I so often use with the Arca as a film camera. I know that I could have opted for the Cambo Arctus or the Arca F-universalis versions for the GFX, but this option, all said and done since I already had the Arca 69, only cost me about $300, and a big hunk of that was the cost of the bellows which had to be permanently altered to accept the GFX body.
