Nikon camera rubber cover panel pealing off....Glue recommendation?

Recommended Posts

My Nikon dslr camera rubber cover panel is pealing off.... It happened to me the same with my old Nikon. It seems to be a permanent problem with Nikon cameras. Do you have any glue recommendation? The glue needs to be flexible enough and keep the rubber panel on the metal housing of the camera....
Thanks so much!

How about gorilla glue.

When I worked in camera repair back in the early 80's we used contact cement. Paint some onto the body and some onto the covering. Let dry for a few minutes and then stick together carefully. Let harden.

Advantages are that its fairly easy to clean up, the solvent works well, but lighter fluid also is a solvent.

Downside, I never tried it on the rubber type grips found on newer cameras.

If you are really the squeamish type, try it on an older camera to see if it works.

And yes, I have heard that Nikon cameras have issues with the rubber coming loose from the camera.
