    LOL. Yah, I didn't even reailize it until I went in the house and looked in a mirror. Glad I didn't make a quick trip to Walmart for some grill cleaning supplies before noticing.

    One thing I have found with the outside of the cook boxes on these grills is that it is usually just the top half that has damage to the factory paint. So, you can get by to just strip the top half above the line where it sits in the frame. Then repaint the whole thing. The transition line is covered up by the frame and you don't notice it.

    Brian:
    If you are not going to sell the grill, then you are right. It isn't necessary to take it down to bare metal. But when a person (Potential buyer) looks at a 15 year old grill and the cook box is nice and clean and shiny metal, it is a great selling point. Same goes with the inside of the lid. It doesn't need to be taken down to shiny clean ceramic like the outside, because after one cook it will be dirty again. But to a buyer, it is another big selling point.

    Are you guys and gals spraying the bottom of the firebox also or is that just a waste of paint obviously would have to mask it off so paint does not get inside. Also I thought the Weber Stainless Grates were way more than $79 bucks the 7639 at Amazon. Those are rods I believe.

    Brian, if I pull the firebox off the frame, I paint the outside of the whole thing. Can do spray paint is $7, so added cost is minimal and its not much work to tape off.

    Those grates are for the Spirit 300 series, which I believe will fit the Genny 1000-5000 as well

    Thanks Dave yes its off the frame so going to paint the whole thing just wanted to check should finish this weekend, the grates should fit was a 1000 review said they did I would love RC"s stuff but may do another one down the road so for $79 bucks its a good comprise and its an original Weber part if I go to sell this one it won't hurt me.

    Nothing wrong with that plan.
