Basic Installation Guidelines

Tech Note. When centering a light seal, leave the backing attached and fold the seal in half toward the foam side. Now when you remove the backing the adhesive will be creased and centering is easy.

Door 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 as required.

Door channel seals, hinge side, back cover. Install these upper and lower back cover channel seals on the back cover, starting at the hinge side, where the channel begins and work to the right.

Mirror cushion.  Install this seal with utmost care.

Hinge Seal, camera body. Install this seal on the camera body, hinge side, centering it between the top and bottom door channels.

Latch plate seal, back cover. Center this seal on the latch pin and place the seal 6.5mm from the edge of the film back as the image shows below. Firmly press in place once you have it positioned properly.
