Removed the 28 -5/16" nuts that held the freezer door panel on and the rear panel that covered the evaporator.
once open the evaperator was defrosted (this took some time) and the interior of the freezer door was defrosted as well.
after defrosting, drying and cleaning, the gasket was simply pulled off and the new gasket was installed on the panel then reinstalled on the door (be sure to follow the instructions on the box that the gasket came in for removing any deformaties due to shipping).
Note that due to the age and loosness of the fasting screws I replaced the # 8 screws with new #10 screws.
