    I cleaned and resealed my XA with Jon Goodmans pre-cut kit.
    His customer service was great, and after receiving my money order, the kit came within 2 days!
    The back feels tight and secure on the XA now, and everything is well sealed.
    If you're considering resealing your camera, its really easy, cheap, and rewarding!

    I've done my own Nikons for years. It's easy with a little practice.

    He is "interslice" on eBay, has all sorts of useful information on his listings there, and comes highly recommended by myself and many others here on APUG.

    I ordered one of his kits to use with my Koni-Omega back(s). Although he didn't have specific instructions, he was still very helpful, and I still have significant amounts of foam left to use with other projects.

    Also, he does have PDFs of information on how to reseal a lot of cameras, like he had a great PDF on how to clean/seal my XA and many useful tips.

    I have recently done a Canonet QL 1.7 and an OM1n with the SMALL kit that Jon supplies. I have heaps left over and found the whole exercise highly rewarding and straightforward. The large kit must be enough to set up a cottage industry resealing vintage cameras... Jon's communication and enthusiasm are very refreshing and he richly deserves his 100% positive feedback after 13000+ transactions...

    I find the instructions that he supplies for different cameras (so far I've done an OM2sp, Yashica GSN and an XA2) are excellent and seem to cover any eventuality that might crop up. I would recommend him to anyone

    One more vote for Mr. Goodman.
    I've sealed my Canons, Nikons and Olympus with his kits (a quite therapeutic task, I must say)
