    Jon Goodman is a *great* fellow to deal with as mentioned above. Excellent materials, too!

    I've used all sorts of things for that. An old pair of headphones provided numerous fixes for my cameras. Just trim off the proper piece from the foam padding and it works fine. I used that pair of pads up finally, and on my FE-2 I cut a piece from some thin black strips of weather sealing I had for going around doors. Worked just great. This is one of the easiest DIY repairs you cam make on a camera. The first time I did it I was disappointed that it made no difference in the mirror slap though. That seemed to come when the mirror slammed back down. Nothing to be done about that.

    +1 I've bought many seal kits from Jon Goodman, and they not only fit perfectly, he provides concise and clear directions. Trust him.

    The nice part about buying the kits from Jon, is that they are always cut to the right size, and made from stuff that works. No need to experiment, and redo.

    I've purchased several different kits from him. Each is custom made for the subject camera.

    Just finished my first re-cement job of a Hasselblad lens doublet. Went well. I used JG's balsam sap procedure and it went well.

    Yep!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    For the mirror and prism seals, and most uses, I use the foam from Jon Goodman and it seems to be an exact match. But for the back light seals, I'm using black yarn, as E. von Hoegh suggests. I have an original Nikon F from the late 60's that came from the factory with black yarn for back seals, and it is still good as new.
