Hi, I just bought a Canon FT camera off ebay and it's really awesome. There's only one problem; There's no battery or batter cover screw thing on the side next to the film rewind crank. Does anyone know where I can find this? Any help would be great!

Unless one of the Asia camera parts websites has one listed, I would search out a scrap FT/FTb. You could try asking the repair shops in your location as to what they have in the scrap bin, this has produced many cosmetic/exterior parts for me. The add-on low light meter kit for the FT/Pellix also uses these covers, many of these no longer function and can be found for peanuts - if you look.
Obviously other members of the Forum will have their favourite supplier of replacement 'lost' parts - no doubt they will provide details of possible sources in the US etc.
