    High Heat Paint Issue

    Must have just been then 70 degree garage that didn’t allow it to cure property... I’ve sanded it all down and am repainting. Glad temps haven’t dropped here yet. Hopefully can repaint tomorrow after I watch my Royals and say goodbye to Alex Gordon.

    High Heat Paint Issue

    I painted this with high heat ultra rustOlem. Let it set for about 7 days and the put this cover on it. It’s been stored in my climate controlled garage for about 5 weeks. Out it out today to deliver and it’s like the paint melted. Maybe a chemical reaction? It’s tacky to the touch and dried...

    Probe Grommet

    Thanks for this link! I opted for this method! Easy and turned out fine. While it is a looker, it’s also my main smoker. The historical significance means something to me, (Weber believes by the vents not being machined and the lack of a date code that it is a pre 1981, this also matches with...

    Probe Grommet

    So I’ve got what Weber has confirmed with me as a pre production 18” WSM. On this I’ve upgraded hardware to stainless steel, new aluminum door and legs. I’m considering putting a probe grommet in. What are your thoughts in this? Would I be ruining the “historical” significance?

    Summit 450 - Rehab

    Update. Been off today so made some decent progress. Used the Ospho yesterday let dry and put on the extreme heat JB Weld. Then reassembled the cook box. Stopped for the day to throw stakes my Genesis E330 for dinner.

    All now painted. Waiting on my Ospho to arrive from Amazon in order to treat the burner cook box panel prior to reassembling the cook box. Very pleased with how this has turned out.

    Summit 450 - Rehab

    My game plan is to let the original panel last as long as it can. Treat now with Ospho and extreme heat JB Weld. While it’s out I’m going to make a cardboard pattern/tracing and source a SS fab for the future that I’ll have for when it finally gives out. I throughly believe it’s got years...

    Summit 450 - Rehab

    I appreciate the honesty but I hate that... There is little to no surface rust so I really hope it’s WAAAAY longer.

    Summit 450 - Rehab

    Update. Frame has been. Sanded. Painted. Tube supports manufactured/replaced and now reassembled. Just waiting on the cook box and end caps to come back from the sand blaster. 2nd pick is the cook box portion where the burner tubes go. No nightmare scenario from a rust standpoint but there is...

    Barkeepers friend. Water. And a very soft sponge. Then elbow grease.
