D700 rubber peeling off!

Hi All

My old beater D700 is shedding it's coat, as it were.

The left front (next to the FX logo) and the main grip which fits inside the palm of your right hand, is peeling off, not just because the glue is gone, but also the rubber itself has stretched a bit.

I tried gluing it back with the recommended 3M double sided adhesive (ebay link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heavy-Duty-Sticky-Self-Adhesive-Double-Side-Strong-Tape-Pad-Transparent-3m/132168988414?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649)

No joy.

Also tried the UHU adhesive as someone suggested on flickr (dumb of me to listen, I know!), no joy there too.

I'm seeing that ebay has a lot of sellers selling the complete set of parts.

Has anyone ordered any of these?

how is the fit? as I'm assuming they may not be original OEM (atleast some of them don't look original in their finish)

Tried Nikon spares, they want to charge a little over £50 for three parts (left, right and the back; No bottom cover)

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
