Well my rubber focus and zoom rings came in from Nikon and just slip on and snuggly so I am a happy boy at only #12.86 including postage. Now some of the rubber on the body is loosing up, especially in the odd shaped area near where the card is inserted. I believe I will carefully super glue that one.

superglue works great. I've even peeled off the rubber, cleaned the body, and glued it back on. The only time that it doesn't work is when the rubber has stretched too much, then a trim is needed.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Mike,

Super glue can do some nasty things to certain types of plastic.

See if you can track down http://eclecticproducts.com/e6000/home.asp . It holds really well and doesn't dry up and crack the way silicone does. You can smear it on to get a smooth thin layer.

Israel

Thanks dude, I hear you are not a glamour guy but in my clouded brain I seem to remember some really hot images of models. I thought they were yours.

I shoot glamour if someone asks me to for the most part. Sometimes I get an idea for an image that may be considered glamour but for me it's something I see in my mind and made it happen..

This image is an example.. The candles were her idea but I think we're going to re-shoot it without them..
