    EricR,

    You have probably long since solved your problem, but I have found that simple gaffer's tape both works to block the light and doesn't interfere with the folds of the bellows when you put in in the corners.

    Nice avatar.

    Tom - Might be. The only problem is that it is pretty thick. The weight might throw off the shutter speed. Or the thickness might cause a jam.

    Or it might work....

    Who knows....

    I would be laothe to experiment on a Leica though. Sort of up there "Faberge' Egg Tossing Contests".

    Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get some liquid rubber in a tube. It'll be in the same section as the epoxy glues. Just a little pin head sized dab will plug the leak and never come off. Flexible, too. I've also used it to repair the hinges on my old Kodak wooden film holders.
