Perhaps I haven’t been clear enough.
What I mean is this.
When removing the top plate from the camera body, the brass top plate comes off the top with a glass panel on the viewfinder window, as well as the RF window, frame line illuminator window, and the small circular frame counter window. What I am wondering, is how to remove these glass panels without damaging them - and whether they are glued or sealed to the top brass plate.
Here is a photo example of top plate and the windows I mean:
Notice the glass windows have been removed prior to repainting.
Notice the glass windows remain with the top plate when removed.
I wish to know how to go about removing these windows, and how to seal them back onto the top plate. Please note, I have an MP model. Which has glass VF windows flush with the surface of the top plate, unlike M2 and M3.
