    Can pickup a silver b for a good price I need the tank scale it has the new one which I think will fit my 1000. Also do the grates fit the 1000 think they do just checking but are these the porcelain ceramic grates they look in great shape. This would have some of the parts I need here is the link.

    That grill looks under priced yet ready to go. I'd buy it, hang on to it for a week or two then repost for at least double the price. Then find another to use as a parts grill

    Yah, hang on, you will get one. I missed out on two good "FREEBIES" last week. I had to drive an hour to get to them and they were both gone. Just the luck of the game.

    Question are you guys using the cup brush for the inside of the lid side pieces what about the outside. The lid finished tonight came out great like brand new.

    Wire brush only on the alumiminum parts. Inside cook box and inside end caps. Out side of each if they need it (ie crud and paint peeling). In that case, it needs repainting with Rustoleum Ultra High Temp paint on the outside. Not on the porcelain coated steel lid. It is porcelin inside and out and comes clean with steel wool and simple green. The inside can be a tough job, but it will come clean with regular household steel wool. Only #0000 on the outside.

    Yes Bruce I knew how to do the lid finished that last night came out great. Got the 2 side pieces done and half the firebox done today ran out of gas but will paint the side pieces tomorrow and finish up the firebox. I cleaned the inside of the firebox did not get carried away as I am not selling it but it is 10 times better than it was a lot of damn work and covered with black soot wife started laughing at me so into the shower I go. Whoever came up with that cup brush idea needs a medal. My stuff was in bad shape took the side pieces and the outside of the firebox down to bare metal.

    Yah, after my first use of the angle grinder and cup brush. Let's just say, I have gotten better at it. Good thing I was wearing safety glasses.

    The outside of the firebox is a dicey issue. The factory paint/finish is textured. Once you start taking that off, you really just need to strip the whole entire box down if you want an even/smooth looking paint job. If you just try to scuff and sand spots, they will be noticeable when repainting.
