Light seals in Europe

Hello, It's been a long time since I last changed the seals for a film camera, but I have to do it for my 1963 SV. Looking around on ebay, things seem to have changed a bit. I can't seem to find kits specifically cut for particular cameras any longer, just sheets of foam that (I suppose) I have to cut myself.
So how do you guys make do? Is Jon Goodman still around? Are there any other guys in Europe that sell kits for Pentax?

I tend to just do black wool yarn and felt which has the advantage of never going bad. The SV is all straight lines, so it should be quite simple. the mirror bumper with adhesive-backed felt, and you are all set.

I know this thread's a little old and thread starter may have solved his problem by now.

John Goodman sends kits to UK from USA (or he was doing so up until last May). I've used several of his kits and they are inexpensive and excellent. His email address is JGood21967@aol.com
