Hope this isnt too obvious, but have you checked why it's leaking light? My Electro needed the light seals replaced as soon as i bought it - it is a REALLY easy job to do. You can buy the material from an ebay seller called "interslice" VERY VERY cheap and he manages to get it sent across the atlantic in about 3 days for less than 1 p&p (not sure how he does that) - the stuff come with very clear and concise intructions on how to remove the old and install the new. this is of course assuming that the light seals are the reason.
