    The time consuming part is cleaning, the measuring and cutting take a minutes tops, all you need a metal ruler, a sharp blade, and a steady hand. Most seal widths range between 2mm (most surrounding door/body seals) and 5-6mm (most door hinge seals) in width. Working with your multiple cameras its easy to slice up a few long lengths (that run the entire length of the foam piece) of each, then individually part them out to the required lengths as you go down the list of cameras.

    I find it pretty simple to cook a good meal from fresh ingredients. Many people prefer ready-to-serve meals. When it comes to bricolage I am a convenience food lover :-)
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    Amen. It's really just that simple, kids. Sheet foam/felt is about a buck/8x10 sheet--that's a lot of practice material!

    I just did a couple of NOS Mamiya RB67 ProS backs whose foam had either gone or was going fast after years in boxes. Removal and clean-up require time and care but the cutting and fitting of new foam was very straightforward.

    Thanks all for responding; I have ordered the kit off eBay and am going to give it a go.

    Once I find out what the foam size/density is, I'll get my own I probably should redo about half of my cameras that would be a couple dozen kits...

    Get a package of bamboo skewers too, they're stronger than about anything else you clean the grooves with.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
