Replacing mirror damper

Hey guys I just picked up a camera, works great except that the foam above the mirror is in pretty bad shape. Does anyone know where I can get some of this foam, or better yet, if there's a common material that I can use as a substitute?

You should send in your camera to get it CLA'd. There's a guy called Eric who can do this- search the forum for more info
