Question about Olympus Photography
I make light seal kits for all OM bodies. Servicing Olympus OM since 1977. www.zuiko.com John

If you can get a specific OM-4 light seal kit then you've done well as they're made of solid unobtanium with prices to match.
The job is not difficult on a DIY basis, just buy a suitable kit of cut to fit material and adhesive. Not difficult, but it can be fiddly...
I've been using kits from an eBay supplier in Japan for a while as his kits contain the correct type of foam, but I've now found one based in the UK who uses the same material with a better adhesive.
The first address is for a current listing. The second one is for the specific seller. You may find another trader who suits you better.
If you lack confidence to do this yourself, then get a pro to do so, but ask for a diagnostic check of shutter speeds first as OM-4's are notorious for circuit board failures. If it's jiggered then the light seal replacement is a waste of time and you should sell the camera for spares or to sit in a collector's display case and buy another.
