    Mine has not had a service in 30 years...
    But you need to start cutting up mouse mat or buy in a kit for light seals.
    The 140 mm macro is a nice all round lens

    John Goodman has the seals. I bought them for my RB67's when I got them. There are 3 seal kits you will need if you want to reseal the everything. One for the mirror, another for the rotating back, and a third for the film back. If you have more than one film back, you will have to purchase a kit for each back you wish to reseal. It's a pretty straight forward task to do the seals, just time consuming depending on how easy the seals come off.

    I have a repairer who will charge me a lot less to re-seal a camera if I go through the grotty part myself - removing the old seals and cleaning the residue!

    That being said, Jon Goodman's seal kits work really well.

    By the way, which version did you get - RB67 Pro, RB67 Pro-S orRB67 Pro-SD?

    I never did post back about the seals, yes I did use Mr. Goodman's kit and this week I will know if it's light-tight. Was straightforward but time-consuming, my line of work dealing with small parts made it easier though.

    It's a Pro-S.....and since I posted this thread it has grown almost into a full system! I'm finally on the cusp of owning my dream camera that I wanted when I first got into photography, a Pro-S RB67 with the Holy Trinity 50/90/180 and all the fixins.....I'm a left grip, 6x8 motor drive and metered prism from realizing that dream. I recently acquired two more backs, a 120 and 220, and plan to add two more 120 backs.

    Nice!
    And I thought I had too many backs.. (I have five 120+ 2polaroid, one keeps conking out)

    Have you replaced seals on all the backs as well - and are you buying the pro-sd backs?

    I suppose with all that gear, you probably stow them in your studio and dont move it much?
