Nikon D200: the material on both outer sides of the camera has come unglued. Any good way to reattach it with out screwing it up

Technician's Assistant: How old is your D200?

Gap -- I would say at least 10 or 15 yuears

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your D200?

Nothing - I fear to screw it up

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with over 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

The rubber grips on Nikon cameras have a tendency to swell and will no longer fit the space for which they are intended. They also seep an oily substance to their surface making re-attachment nearly impossible. There are, however, several vendors who sell replacement grips for the D200. Here is a link to a list of many of them:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=nikon+d200+parts&_ipg=200&rt=nc

I have used them many times and have found them to be of good quality and will revitalize your camera.

Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask rather than leave a negative response.

Thank You

Rick
