    I was in a real rush this week, and got some work done on the donor grill. The crux of the matter is I painted the lid end caps and cook box, but grabbed the wrong paint from the garage. I was rushing, and had the gloss high heat, so I went to swap it in the garage, and grabbed what I thought was mat high heat, but it was mat high performance. So will it all flake off? I must have given the high heat to my father inlaw when I was trying to give him high performance.

    I was planning on roughing up and degreasing the frame (I water blasted it yesterday) and painting it tomorrow. Then will do the re-assembly. I don't see an easy way to take off the paint, so think I might just run with it and sand blast it in a couple of years.

    Random finds when taking the grill apart and power washing and simple greening it.

    1) the cross over tube is broken, so hope I can just get a new one of them
    2) the manifold is not held to the box the same as my green one, instead of wing nuts, it has bolts with thumb turns on them.
    3) the red lid has sort of small black flecks in the paint that I can see now, and some fine scratches.

    Anyways, just want to get it going and ditch the green one before summer is over.

    All the colors have those black flecks. For some reason it just shows more on the red. You may find Weber not making that c/over tube any more. I know they quite making them for similar age Summit grills (like my 450) though I think there are some aftermarket ones available. Some had bolts with wing nuts some had bolts that threaded into the fire box with finger holds it's luck of the draw. The ones that thread into the fire box if you can get them out I recommend getting stainless steel replacements and when reinstalling put some never seize on the threads

    Thanks, good to know the red lid is about average then. Got the frame painted today, and will bolt it all back together in the next few days. It's not a complete detailed rebuild, just about what I did on the green grill, but this one doesn't have a rusted frame.
