Jon, are those instructions online anywhere? The KYphoto site seems to have a 2005 version ( that does not include the section about the POD. I'd be keen to see your simplified process. I've seen such a process with minimal disassembly described with pictures somewhere online, but would trust your version better. Your instructions that I've used on prior light seal jobs (Canonet QL17, Mamiya C330, etc.) have been great, as of course have been your materials. I'm still working through a packet of seals that I ordered perhaps four years ago. (Need to buy more cameras...)
