Hi Steve -

I found the doc I was looking for:

https://dcc.ligo.org/LIGO-E1200821

Specifically, you might find guidance in Section 5 and the pictures at the end of the doc.  This should work for Vacseal as well.

Good luck - it will take some time (hours to day or 2)...
I'll be interested to know how it goes.

GariLynn helped us develop this procedure so you could also ask her to cast an eye over the setup if you are worried.

-Betsy

ps: there is no existing fixture to hold SOS optic while soaking it
