The most important and time consuming work is removing the old seals. Focus on clean, clean, clean. Clean the old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and anywhere else you are replacing the seals. The finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a quality light seal. Proper installation will give you thousands of light tight exposures.
The placement guide below should help with installing these seals.

Next, take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,
2 x 1mm – channel seals, camera body
Hinge Seal, camera body. Install this seal centering it between the top and bottom door channels.
Channel seals, camera body. Install the upper and lower camera body channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever. You will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible, cutting the seal as required.
Channel seals, hinge side back cover. Install these upper and lower back cover channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from left to right. See the image below.
Channel seals, latch side back cover. Install these upper and lower back cover channel seals starting at the hinge side flush with the edge of the back cover, working from right to left. See the image below.
Mirror cushion. Replace the mirror cushion centering it between the sides of the mirror box. Use caution and remember if any thing touches the focusing screen, it will likely be permanently damaged.
