Surprised there were no opinions here.
I've been in touch with Garry. He said there is a 50/50 chance that the Meter can be repaired, depends entirely on what the problem is. I'll be sending it in to him on Tuesday along with a F3 and FE2 for CLAs. If he finds he can repair the FM, he will for the cost of the CLA. This is a nice looking camera, and everything else seems to function fine.
If he can't fix it, I guess I'll get better at Sunny 16. Might be fun.
I'll post back when I get them back.
