    I have a D200 that had some work done and now the rubber that covers the grip (actually almost the whole camera) is coming off.

    Has anyone used a certain product and solved this problem?

    I'm looking for any suggestions... (other than the buy a new camera variety!)

    Thanks!

    I got a whole new set of rubber grip replacements from ebay. The seller's username is rubaninas. I haven't replaced them yet, but it shouldn't be hard.
     
  3. You can get the new grips from Nikon and they're not expensive.

    They are very expensive in the UK. :mad: 
     
  5. I didn't think £5 was expensive for the new back rubber I got for my D200.

    Ronnie, do the grips come with glue? How dd you clean up the old glue?
     
  7. The grips come with double sided tape on them and you (of course :)  peel off the backing before you apply them. I haven't done mine yet as being a mean old Scot I'm waiting on the old one peeling a bit more before I ditch it. :biggrin:

    Here is a thread showing how it's done.

  8. Actually, it might not be double sided tape on the grips but they do have peel of white paper on the insides.

    No, I agree, that is good. :smile: How did you contact Nikon?
     
  11. I contacted them at spareparts@nikon.co.uk. They told me the part number and the cost but I had to call them to order it.

    Here is the relevant page from their site.

    I have posted this elsewhere: Use GOOP (or a similar silicone-based adhesive) instead of the tape.

    Here's why:

    1. MUCH more temperature and moisture resistant.

    2. Allows you to position th grip perfectly before it sets up.

    3. Easily removed; just work a corner fre and peel it off.


    Just make sure to remove the old tape residue and degrease the area (rubbing alcohol will do) before applying the GOOP.
