Looks fine at first glance. As a colour print the silver grain would be bleached out. Is this your car BTW?

Thanks Daiku San, Murray ...
Could a mild "blix"- bath (ferricyanide + thiosulfate) improve things a little ?
My wife had a similar car, but this is one from the neighbourhood.

I think that would remove the silver image and since there is no colour you end up with a clear piece of film. I think you will have to experiment with something other than 'honest grain' the Rodinal gives.
I have the handbook for the '82 2CV6 Special & Club if she needs one. English.

The idea was to use the blix as a post-process with visual examination (similar with Farmer's reducer). But maybe it's best to rate the film 50 iso or so and develop it this way - grain will be a lot finer -- yes HC 110 could be a good idea.

Did you cut and re-spool the film yourself?

Thanks Robert,
Petko, it uses 120 film and the 4.5 cm markings , (and wastes a lot of film this way).

Good work. But as I understand you are developing color film in R09 dilution 1+50. After developing you fix it normally and you get dense negatives which may be scanned however. Do you know my homemade process to get transparent b&w negatives from c41 films?

Hi Henrique, I'm afraid not .. (I myself tried some things , without success ) .. Can you link it , I must have missed it (in the DIY color group ? )

The discussion is here: www.ipernity.com/group/303789/discuss/148017

But instead of preparing the stock solution, please try to make a developing batch only. I tried the same using hair dye containing parafenilenediamine and adding it to a black and white developer, Caffenol or Parodinal. The difference is that using CD4 or hairdye mixed with the B&W developer, you can bleach and get the remaining layers who give the extreme density off. Silver is bleached out, what remains are (black) color dyes.
