Pentax Me Super repair project

OK I Have the seals and dampers all replaced and cleaned the shutters, but now I noticed that when I activate the shutters, first it seems like the mirror slowly lifts and when it hits the damper, the shutter goes off, at what I think is the right speed and it doesn't stick to the damper like it did and seem to put the mirror down at the right speed. It's the mirror rising slow thats not right. Any thoughts

Sounds like the mirror/shutter mechanisms need to be relubed.
