dnas-

Well done job.

However, for those that live in the USA, there are still some brand new D-200 bodies out there and they are reasonably priced.

Also, here's a Nikon D90 I picked up a couple of months back, for around $60 USD equivalent!!! (on the left, condition as shown!!!!)




Missing mount.... not ripped off, just removed. Missing AF/MF lever. Missing locking pin.

Dropped on its corner here:


However, in spite of my thoughts that it was probably completely DEAD, it was actually working!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Once I determined that it worked, I set about fixing as much as I could!!

Removing the front & repairing the damage:











The missing lens mount was taken from the old Nikon D70 shown in the first photo. It's a perfect fit!!!

Finished result:

I cringed when I saw the disassembled camera. <grin>
As for your drawings to keep track of where the screws go . . . brilliant!
Take care, yours truly,
Glen
