    Looks like you have a great grill to work with. Hopefully, you can rescue that drop down swing table.
    Good luck with the rebuild. Keep us posted on how it goes.

    Mark: RCPlanebuyer is a guy that sells very high quality Stainless Steel replacement parts for Weber grills, to include cooking grates, flavorizer bars, heat sheilds as well as other parts. They are much better than any of the aftermarket Stainless parts and even significantly better quality than real Weber replacement parts. He uses only 304 stainless steel which is the best as well.

    If you are interested, just shoot me a PM asking for his contact info and I will forward it to you.

    Looks like the diyalready.com links are broken, but I was able to track down an archived copy of the page and it seems that was actually a re-post from reddit and imgur. Here's what I was able to track down for anyone else that wants to read about the Weber Genesis restoration by ebar418:

    Bruce did an excellent how to video and I believe has already helped out some of the members on this board. Thank you.

    Hello Everyone
    First post. I love this site! I especially love how everyone provides input. It's funny how I fell in love with this 1100. I have a Performer and a E330P Genesis, but this 1100 looks so beautiful when restored.
    I just read through this thread and it has empowered me to do a restore on a 90's Genesis 1100 (Red). Can you please review my plans and advise me if any of this can be done better or different?
    Thank you!
    Dismantle everything. ! was able to get the firebox bolt off!
    Wash and degrease the exterior and inside the firebox (if I use brake cleaner or oven cleaner for the exterior frame, inside the firebox, exterior firebox and the exterior lid, will it ruin the red top?)
    Do I need to sand the frame before painting? (there's not much rust..just a little in the joints)
    Paint with RustOleum High heat (semi gloss for frame and flat for the cookbox and end caps)
    How many coats of paint do you suggest?
    Thank you all for your input
    Robert

    Oven cleaner for the cook box. Just scrub down the frame with a scotchbrite scrubby and some good cleaner. Then wipe it down with some rubbing alcohol or a solvent like XLOL and probably spray the light rust at the joints with some Rustoleum rust reformer and then paint. I would suggest using High heat paint like rustoleum high heat ultra on the frame where it is close to the cookbox and you can use regular spray paint else where on the frame.

    The lid is ceramic. Clean the outside with #0000 steel wool and a good cleaner. I like to use Simple Green. But, you could use oven cleaner if you like.

    I would use flat for the cook box and semi gloss for the end caps. Three or more coats on the cook box and end caps. Two or three for the frame.

    Thanks Bruce

    I have found that the inside of the frame is rusting and my finger can punch through certain parts of the grill. I am looking for a new frame. I see a lot of weber genesis 1000s available (I assume the difference between the 1100 and the 1000 is the wire under the cookbox instead of wood). Can I use 1000 frames to replace my 1100 frame? I just did not know if there were different screws that hold up the wood vs the wire under the cook box.

    Thanks

    Thanks.
