You are installing a 4 piece kit fits Canon Canonet 17, 19, 25, QL17, QL17 L, QL19, QL19 E, and QL25.

These Canon rangefinder cameras are larger and a little heavier than the Canonet QL17 GIII rangefinders.

Take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,

Channel seals, camera body – 2 x 1mm
Hinge seal, camera body – 1 x 1mm  *
Latch plate seal, back cover – 1 x 2mm  *

* flocking or ? material used and haven’t seen any cameras where that material wearing out, only users removing it I guess thinking it needs to be replaced. Use only if the seals are missing.

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.
