    Hi there,

    So I busted the lugs off an otherwise mint Nikonos II I bought, I forgot you had to take the lens out. Dumbo.

    I need a new top plate and hopefully I can transfer the innards of this camera to that top plate.

    If you have a Nikonos II for parts, please let me know.

    Thanks!
    Paul

    I've had Nikonos' with broken lugs and was still able to separate the body from the shell. Remove the lens and place your thumb inside, past the lens mount and push up on the inner body. Sometimes you have to push hard but it will come apart. Hope it works for you!
