D700 - rubber grips coming off, self-repair, self replace or send it in?
3 months ago

Well, the rubber grips on my D700 are starting to come off.

I could live with the one under my thumb being loose, since the way I hold the camera, it is held in place by my thumb.

But now the front lower left is starting to pull away.

Has anyone here ever re-attached their grips? If so, what adhesive did you use? 
has it been effective over time?
Has anyone ever replaced their grips themselves? If so, where did you get the grips? From Nikon themselves, or are there other sources?

Lastly - has anyone had Nikon replace their grips? If so, and you don't mind sharing, how much did the new grips, and attachment labor run?

thanks
