Over the years I've acquired several near-mint painted Nikon F cameras, and they are all in need of a good CLA and foam replacement. I've considered replacing the foam myself, but I'm afraid I'd probably do more harm than good.
Most repair shops want to work on newer equipment, and compete for the lowest price and quickest turn. The techs who really knew the classic equipment are now gone. And I fear most shops don't take the care with these classic painted cameras to avoid little scratches and dings.
I'm looking for a shop who will take the time, and really care for the equipment. So I'll present this question to those owners of the classic painted cameras--where do you send your equipment for a good CLA?
