I have removed the top from several Canon AE-1 bodies. It is not really difficult; it just takes patience.
My question is this: has anyone removed the top from the A-1? Are there dangers involved here, or is it rather straightforward? I am worried about all the levers and switches on that top: are they integral to the top or are there things that could get lost in the process? Do the hot shoe screws have to be removed, also?
I need to do this because the strap lugs are slightly loose and I am afraid that one might come off. I want to tighten the screw securing the lug. - David Lyga
