    I love my F3s. Good on ya for refurbishing it. It will probably outlive you, they are very solid cameras and fun to use.

    Yellow. Goes well with the Nikon strap. The prankster in me says to try and find a strap with "D3" on it.

    I"m constantly being asked how many MP's in my F3 with MD4 or my F4s,, I read somwhere that the 35mm neg holds about 55 MP worth of data, so I just look them in the eye and tell them 55 in RAW, then watch the envy in their eyes.

    My local photo store has a bargain bin. All the straps on my cameras came from there @ $2 each :-)

    I would tell them what they tell the customers in Rolls Royce showrooms when the customers ask what the cars maximum speed is "sufficient".

    I'm removing old glue remnants at the moment with alcohol, Q-tips and a small screw driver.

    I did a Yashica in black Griptac a while back, it was fun and easy. http://www.apug.org/forums/viewpost.php?p=1352242

    Nice job on the Yashica!!
    The FX-3 was my first camera back in 1983. Served me well.

    I have a Pentax LX recovered by the previous owner in Navy Blue. Since the LX is black the combination is very nice, restrained and elegant. I think the kit was from http://aki-asahi.com/store/, it seems to fit as well as the factory coverings on my other two LXs. (No one should have only one LX! )
