Likewise, the old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and other areas where you are replacing seals, must be clean and spotless.

The finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a foam light seal. Furthermore, proper installation will also give you thousands of light tight pics.

General Installation Guidelines

Before you do anything, please read the general instructions on removing and installing light seals here. 

Channel seals, camera body.

Install the upper and lower back cover channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever.

Also, you will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible.

The lower seal is the short channel seal. Start installing the lower channel seal at the hinge end first and work to the left. This seal only covers the channel as it rounds the corner about 3mm down.  It does not fit the complete channel like the top seal.

Hinge Seal, back cover.

Install this starting at the top edge of the back cover, hinge side and work your way down.
