    I am Trying to Save a Red Head. (With Pictures)

    A couple of weeks ago I bought a Genesis basket case.
    Today I have it running and about 70% complete.

    Here is a picture of what I brought home and a few of what it looks like today.













    Thanks to everyone before me for sharing your tips and how to's.

    That looks great Bill. Looks about the exact same model as my personal project Red head. I would consider redoing the wood in those shelves. I am looking forward to some photos after it is complete.

    Very nice! You're doing a great job on that red head.

    Thanks for all of the comments.

    My project is only mocked-up at this point for test fit and fire.
    Tomorrow I will disassemble it to finish cleaning, painting, and replace all of the wood slats.

    While I have it apart I am going to get a quote to have the inside of the firebox and hood & hood sides media blasted.

    Updates to follow.

    Thanks again for the support!

    -Bill

    Not at all to dissuade you from media blasting, but let me just say, it's incredible how fast the firebox will look just like it does now after that.

    The hood interior, on the other hand, I was able to scrub the carbon off with an aggressive steel wool pad, and get to shine. The aluminum side caps? Not so much.

    Just two cents.

    Slainte!
