    I was about to reload my RZ67 120 back today and I noticed a loose bit of lightseal foam on the clam shell back. I tried to push it back into place but it proceeded to disintergrate. I guess now is a good time to check all the other seals. I have some light seal foam left over from doing my OM1, so I was going to have a go at doing it myself. Does anyone have any instructions on how it is done on the RZ?
    Thanks

    That's a pretty big statement with little justification when mr interslice doesn't advertise any RZ foam kits, only pre-cut kits for other cameras.

    You miss the point. It is not the message so much as the delivery. This is not the military. Opinions stated as facts, and as orders, without explanation, will get people's eyes a-rollin'! You may be correct, but your delivery would cause many to disrespect your point of view and to assume that you are full of it.

    Jon Goodman hasn't got his RZ kit up and running yet. I ended up getting it done at Nagami Camera Service for $30. Good value I thought.
    Another service center wanted $130!

    I would have thought that the RZ's backs would be designed like the RB67's Pro-SD backs in that they don't have light seals.

    I believe some backs have them and some don't. Maybe the RZ67 II doesn't have them. But mine isn't a series II and definately has them.

    John doesn't have a specific kit for the RB/RZs but his universal kit will work just fine. I've done a few of my backs with it and he does have instructions specific to the Mamiya backs. Its quality stuff all around.

    Jon is no longer using eBay, but he has been spending a fair amount of time here on APUG recently - his APUG handle is Jon Goodman, and he can be PMed. I have his email as well, in case it doesn't show on his APUG profile.
