I am fixing up a QL17 GIII that I recently acquired. I want to clean the film back and replace the seals. Is it easy to remove the back completely in order to do this. I also have another camera with the film back in better condition. If I can swap the doors and replace the seals at the same time, it would be a much nicer camera.
Ideally, I'd love to swap the lenses between the two cameras. Is that also possible without getting deeply involved?
I'm very mechanically inclined, but dealing with lots of small parts, especially if they are prone to spring our or fall off before I get a bearing on where they are located is dangerous for me
But if a lens swap is somewhat straight forward, I'm game to try removing the lens on the parts camera first to assess if I want to continue on my good one.
For background, I've already removed the top and bottom case, cleaned the viewfinder, and have adjusted the viewfinder.
Any instructions somewhere on how to swap the back and lens, and what tools might be needed?
BTW. I know I kind of just showed up one day in the forum, and without even an introduction. I just want to say I appreciate all the help and hospitality everyone has shown me, as well as the newcomers that I've noticed who joined after me. A great group of people willing to help others. Kudos!
