    I went ahead and ordered a sheet of the 3mm thick foam from Micro-Tools. The stuff that was in there was pretty thin. I think I will removeit and put a double thickness of the 3mm stuff. If that doesn't work, I'll either use a mouse pad or weather stripping. Thnaks to all for your suggestions. Bill Barber

    The McMaster-Carr part no. that Richard Ritter recommended is #93085K18. It is an EPDM-type sponge rubber adhesive strip.

    I bought the 3mm from Micro tools and put a double layer and it looked great, hoowever I have a little light leak. Maybe one more layer or try something new. It is the foam that fits on the light head just above the negative carrier. I'm sur it must have been original foam. What a mess. Popsicle stick, elbow grease, denatured alcohol, glass cleaner, small vaccum cleaner and it really looked great, just leaked light. Bill Barber

    Home Depot has weather stripping-black foam with adhesive on one side-works great.

    I have some, which will be this afternoon's project. Thought I would try to use the "right" stuff first, before I just used what should work. The most difficult part of the project was getting the old sticky stuff off and then getting the plastic cover the light shines throug, clean. What a mess. The foam from Micro tools was good stuff, just too thin. It cut nicely on my mat cutter and installed easily. Bill Barber

    nsurt,Iv'd had good luck with lighter fluid ,dose not attack the paint as fast as other solvents and really dissolves the glue and sticky old foam.

    I second the lighter fluid/naptha suggestion. Most of the adhesives used on self-stick stuff seems to be more readily softened and dissolved by that than alcohol-based solvents, and it's about the most benign thing I know of for most paint finishes.

    I used denatured alcohol. It worked great. It is my lens cleaner of choice. That may make some crazy and it does work. Biill Barber
