    2001 Genesis C Rehab is finished!

    I finished the rehab on the 2001 Genesis C I rescued off a trailer load headed to the scrape yard a couple weeks ago.
    A huge Thank You to everyone that answered my questions along the way! I finished the restore last Wednesday afternoon, all except the new handle, which I'm still waiting on. I used all Weber oem new parts, and though kinda spendy, I have no regrets what so ever, I have a brand new Weber Grill, something I always wanted, and now even more special, because not only did I rescue this beauty from the claws of the scrape metal yard, I resuscitated breath back into it, and she is sure to live another 20 years!
    I only hope my first attempt at posting a picture, will work..I've been trying to figure it out for days!
    So here goes, meet O'l Blue Belle. (fingers crossed, picture shows up)

    WOW! I posted pics! Cool! Who says you can never teach an old dog new tricks??
    As you can see, I discovered a thumb size dent on top of the hood as I was cleaning off years off Crap on it..I was so bummed, and considered switching lids to one of the 2 green lids I rescued from same load.. but I liked the blue so much, I decided to use it, and try to ignore the small dent...and if at a time I become so anal that the dent keeps me awake at night, I'll switch it out for a green.

    Great job Mary that grill looks like new! The payback for that hard work will be many years of great grilling from your resurrected O'l Blue Belle.

    Thanks, Rich! I totally enjoyed doing the restore. The only really hard part was cleaning that cookbox!
    I cleaned it with a wire brush, simple green and a garden !

    I can't seem to get the other pictures to upload to photo bucket from my phone... of course, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, as I've never used photo bucket before.

    Thanks Tim! I love it!
    I didn't take off the cookbox or the bottom side of the swing out table, because I was afraid I would break the bolts.. so I just left them intact, and worked around them.

    Hi Mary,
    This looks wonderful and you had a lot of work with it. It was worth it. I wish I would be able to do similarly!
