First of all, the most important and time-consuming work is removing the old seals. Focus on clean, clean, clean. Also, pay careful attention and clean all old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and anywhere else you are replacing the seals.

You need to understand the finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a quality light seal. Finally, an accurate installation will give you thousands of light tight exposures.
