Hi
My precious D700 has the rubber grip just started to come loose ,only on the edges.
Any suggestions how to do a DIY repair?
I know this is a common problem but in all my cameras have never this happen.
Please help.

Haven't done a D700 but reglued the peeling rubber on a D1x with rubber cement purchased from Lowe's. Make sure the area where the glue goes is clean and then apply the cement to the rubber and the camera body where the rubber mates to it and hold it in place until it bonds.
