How many hours you should spend for measuring foam seal size and cut them if you do it by yourself?
Actually I spent 2 hours for measuring to make datas of cutting molds.
You can save time, this is no hassle and these are accurate size for Contax 139Q
If you are experienced repairman, you will see how it is difficult to cut the foam seals like the shape as above image.
This kit is already cut bend shape as above image by cutting molds.
Install this kit is not very difficult,
3 foam kits are included, you do not have to worry if you waste one or two.
If you are not so confident, you can use 2 kits for exercise, you can install perfectly for the 3rd time.
1,2. Remove the old light seals and clean up the residue with alcohol or benzine.
3. Take out the new light seal from the base paper.
4. Use cotton swab or paint brush and rub alcohol or water on the adhesive (sticky) side.
The alcohol or water delays the adhesion and allows you time to position and adjust the seals.
5. place the seals onto the ditch.
6. Use flathead screwdriver and adjust the seals before the alcohol get dry.
This kit fits to Contax 139Q, does NOT
fit to the other Contax or Yahica series cameras.
