Nikon D200 repair

The usual Nikon sickness. Rubber falling off, well maybe not falling but peeling anyway. So I ordered some new rubber (bottom, left side and right side) from Ebay, about $25. Old camera yes, but still worth it I think, if not from the feeling of achieving something.

I was lucky to find the thumb grip localy. As can be seen from the picture it’s not just the adhesive that has lost its glory, the rubber has actually expanded in size too.

Removing the old grip bits was easy, the hard and time consuming part was to remove all the glue residues. It took me the best part of an hour or so, with some nail polish remover and cotton pins.

Clean and ready for the new parts to arrive …
