    Hey Brian, if you have a Lowe's nearby they sell (at least near me in Maryland) slats that are nearly perfect in size, all you need to do is cut to length. I stained mine
    with Teak oil, still perfect a year later. I also was missing the slider rail parts for my side table, called Weber and as I recall got them for a great price. Weber people
    are super to deal with. Look over your grill carefully for any missing end caps, etc cuz when I ordered a few parts they threw some small things like that in free. Good luck, it's totally worth it.

    Love the love you've given this redhead!

    Could you tell me if your rotisserie is the Weber part number 9891? Not a better rotisserie in my opinion.

    Yep, it is a 9891 roto. Pretty hard to find now. They were discontinued quite a while ago.

    for the 13 Flavor bars it was like $66 including shipping. I think the #9813 are the porcelin coated ones and I don't think there is any question that the better deal is the RCPlanebuyer set. They will last three times as long if not longer. The extra $15 is a no brainer.

    Nice job Bruce. Your presentation was well done. I think your red cover looks pretty pristine. Mine had a couple of small dings but I decided I might do more damage by trying to repair them. So I just left them, it adds character.

    I agree CBarton. Not much can be done once it is damaged. But, keep your eyes open. You will see others and you might be able to snag a "Pristine" cover from another one. I have another redhead in the garage right now.

    Bruce, you seem to be the most informed on these old Genesis 1000 Redheads. Now that I finished my rebuild I don't really know what to do with it. I have a much newer and bigger Weber for daily use.
    Is there a market for these old restored grills ? If so what would be the going price ? Otherwise what do you do with an old grill that you don't really want to use and get all dirty again ? Just show it to your friends, take it to antique car shows, show it off at farmers markets? Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hahahah, I understand the dilema. I debated a while about actually restoring this for myself. I also was very hesitant with putting it to use the first time after fixing it up. I have used a Weber Q100 for over 10 years and really saw little need for a big three burner. It is just me and the wife most of the time. But, since I got it finished, I have used the Q100 exactly one time and that was last night. I just love the Redhead. Anyway, yah, I agree, if you don't have a need or even a use for it, then sell it. If I had tried to sell mine, I probably wouldn't let it go for anything less than $250. I got the missing drop shelf off a donor grill, and everything else was still usable aside from the flavorizer bars. They RCPlanebuyer bars (13 of them) in SS. My total investment in the grill is well under $100, but my time, especially with the wood for the tables and handle as well as full cleanup is worth something. The Redhead is another bonus.

    If I were you, I would either sell the grill, or wait for an occasion to use it a gift. Wedding present, Xmas present, etc.... for one of your REALLY good friends or relatives. That way, you still get to see it on occasion and make sure it isn't being neglected like it had in its past life.

    Oh, by the way, I am likely not the most informed on the Redhead 1000 on this forum. There are others that I am sure are more informed on this one and the others. I just did a lot of research and put a lot of time and effort into mine. This forum has been the source of the vast majority of what I know about this grill and other Weber grills.

    One other question if I may, where is a good source for the rotisserie motor and mount?

    I have the basket and handles and clamps.

    I see the motor is available several places but which is the correct mount?
