USCamera Custom Olympus XA2 Light Seal Installation Guide
Before you do anything, please read general instructions on installing light seals here.
Tech Note The original black paint used on the inside of the back cover may start to flake off when removing the seals whether using a solvent of any kind or not. Though time consuming, we found the best way is to remove as much material as possible by carefully pushing the residue up off the metal with square toothpicks cut at a chisel point. Then with a small amount of Naphtha on a Kimwipe clean the remaining residue with 1 or 2 swipes on that area. Now the film back should be prepared for new 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
1 x 2mm – channel seal top, back cover
1 x 2mm – channel seal bottom, back cover
1 x 2mm – latch seal, back cover
1 x 2mm – hinge seal, back cover
Hinge Seal, back cover. Install this seal hinge side of the back cover, centering it between the top and bottom edge of the back cover and the cut out for the strap.
Latch plate channel seal, back cover. Install this seal centering it in the channel next to the door latch per the image.
Door channel seals, camera body. Install the upper and lower camera body channel seals starting at the hinge side of 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.
Door channel seals, back cover. The top seal is the shorter. Install the top back cover channel seal starting as close to the hinge seal as possible, working from left to right to approximately the right side of the pressure plate. Install the lower back cover channel seal the same way though this seal will extend to the latch side of the cover.
