    My 26" Performer XL

    The Victim: a CL 26" Kettle.



    Bottom & part of top.



    Made a "hoop".





    Going 3D.



    Bracket time.



    It's going to work!





    Hope to finish in the next week or so. Will update.
    Def want gas assist - that might take a while. Looking for a beater CL Performer to cannibalize, however might have to buy new parts for that.

    You've got some serious skills Robert, that is going to be one cool performer.

    I like it. It would be a beast to move. How wide is it overall?

    Robert, with your skill, I am thinking that this one won't really be finished without remote control and steering, and drive motor
    to drive it into the "perfect" spot in the lawn for each cook! Just because you can. ;-)

    LOL... & thanks.

    Got a bit more accomplished today: casters, bottom shelf & Unknown BBQ hinge (http://unknownbbq.com/custom-wsm-hinge/).





    Time to start skinning this puppy.
