EE-S focusing screen in K-x

Hello. I've read prior threads about the Canon EE-S focusing screen. I am about to install the screen I bought from and was curious if any forum members know the size of the original shim installed in the K-x with its original focusing screen. I want to avoid multiple attempts to shim correctly. The new screen comes with shims, but I am not sure of their size. Thanks, all!

I have no idea about the original shim thickness, but I think I needed 3 thin shims for my EC-A.

It is going to take multiple attempts, every camera is a little different. Start with the original shim and work from there.
