After lurking for a while, (and learning tons) I picked up a Genesis 2 off of CL for $40. I love any thread with pics so I'm going heavy on pics hoping others like that too. Normal grime from use and some rust I didn't initially see. Here are the "before" pics. The lid on this grill was totally faded from the sun so I put a notice in my neighborhood listserv that I would be delighted to acquire a Weber Grill like this (added a photo) and bingo got another grill free. This one a Silver whose lid fits great and is in far better shape. The Silver will be my second project ... I got a fever and the only prescription is more Weber grills!
