    Just completed my restoration of the beautiful opera lamps on my '89 5th Ave. The procedure was quite easy. If anyone has questions, please ask me. There is a post on the FMJ bodies only website with detailed instructions. 20170811_063823.jpg 20170811_063806.jpg

    I never saw this until now. I was lucky, both my 82 and 89 had working lights. I know if they didn’t I’d be doing what you did.

    Thank you! It took a lot of time, but it was worth it. I have dreamed, over the years, of having a 5th with working opera lamps.

    Thanks! She's my beauty! I feel bad driving her only twice a month because I keep her stored. But I keep a full tank of non ethanol 94 octane with a stabilizer added.
