I recently got an FSM off ebay and when I got it the glue in the binding was giving away, which made it a PITA when doing a valve adjustment recently on my 96FZJ80 Sooo, I took all the pages out of the cover, section by section, three hole punched them and put those little round plastic reinforcements over every hole and put each section in a washable plastic heavy duty binder. Then I used my cookbook holder from Williams Sanoma to both keep it open and protect it from grease. The holder holds it upright and has a plexiglass cover that keeps the pages open and dirt free. The best part is that the pages lay flat with the binder, I only have to bring the section I need and the sections are much more portable when I want some reading material. I love my FSM, but don't want to buy another one anytime soon. Hope this helps somone.
