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 top seal in the back needs to be cut and expose the film counter? What is your advice on how to cut the exact correct size, sorta surprised it does not come pre-cut?

      Yes, you will need the take one of the long door channels seals and cut a piece 18mm long for the seal from the start of the channel to the beginning of the opening for the counter engagement lever.
