I need to replace the light seals in my Minolta-35 (x2, 1950 & 1953), SR-7 (x2, 1963 & 1964) and XG-7 (1979-ish). Problem is, I don’t know what thickness of foam to buy for each of them, and I don’t want to buy pre-cut kits since I have five to repair. Can anyone answer this for me? Point me in the right direction? I appreciate any help, and good hunting!
I've only ever used thin adhesive-backed foam sheets from a craft store. Usually only the seal at the hinge end of the film door causes light leaks. Have never bothered beyond that with anything deeper in the camera. IMHO seal kits are a bit of a con.
