    Thanks Jon! Have you found an easy way to tighten down the lid handle? Mine still moves even after it’s tight.

    My Skyline Restoration Pics

    Thanks Bruce. Yes I will remove the end caps starting with the Genesis 3000 I am working on. I never thought of touching those boots unless the end caps were coming off and in need of replacement. I’ll let you know how it goes!

    My Skyline Restoration Pics

I happened to drive and it worked out great because I was able to just pick up the grill from a nice couple. I had fun working on...

Do any of you...

    First Restore: Genesis Red Head

    Hello everybody. Just want to share photos of my first restoration. I was able to pick this grill up for $40. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It needed a lot of work, however. This was very challenging because I did not have most of the tools needed to complete this task. I had...

I am heading down the home stretch of my 1100 Red Head rebuild and I will be putting together the wood slats this weekend. While I am somewhat clear on the wood below the firebox, can someone...

    Hello Bruce I just received my RCplanebuyer flavorizer bars. They came nicely packaged they were very hefty. However I’m noticing that there’s some scratches on most of the bars. Is this normal? Just wanted to check with you. Thank you.

    Hello Dave any advice on the staining and varnishing process? I sanded and stained successfully. I applied the first coat of spar varnish which went great until I flipped it over and some of the spar varnish dripped under the underside. Now every side looks great except the underside there are...

    From Drab to Fab - Putting together a "How-To" Restoration Guide

    Hello Dave thank you. You mentioned 5/16 wood screws . I assume these are to hold the wood slats to the Z-bar correct? if so is there a particular length?. I need to go out today and buy the screws. The screws that I took out , believe it or not, were a mixture of different screws. I’m just...

    Hello Great post on the parts list. Do you happen to know the screw size to hold all the wood slats to the z bar? I’m guessing about 48 are needed. I do not have an old one for reference. Thank You. Robert
