Argos C-Four repair

I recently purchased an Argos C-Four from an estate sale (I got the flash unit too!) and not being experienced with vintage rangefinders (or rangefinders in general), I didn't realize the shutters were stuck in the body. From what I've read online it's a fairly common problem, and I've heard people talking about how "easy" it is to repair this camera, and wondered if any of you kind Pentaxians have worked with this camera? I have have the tools to do the job, but if anyone has any schematics, or advice, pitfalls to avoid etc. That'd be greatly appreciated.
