    Weber Summit Platinum D6

    This past weekend I acquired a new to me Summit D6. This was from a good friend who moved and the house he moved to had a wolf built in.






    As you can see she needs some TLC.

    This week I purchased: burners, flavorizer, igniter, knobs, wheels, and a lot of degreaser.

    I also through my friend was able to reach out to Weber and aquire a new lid and cook box under warranty. After next weekend ( God Willing) I should have this beauty as good as new.

    More to come.

    Welcome to TVWBB!

    I am not a fan of the current Summits, but that model is a much better one and the Platinum version you picked up is the best! Sounds like you are willing to put the time and money into this project, so in time you will have one really nice extra large grill. Hopefully you can keep the pictures coming. If possible try to use a photo sharing option where the pictures are posted right in your thread. Imgur.com is a popular one here.

    You're on the right track, but not quite there.....
    In Imgur, copy the BBCode link and paste that into your post. Then the picture will appear in the post without a link.

    That is a nice score! The all stainless one (good kind) makes it an even rarer one!

    That's great! We will all enjoy seeing more pictures of your progress as you rehab this very promising candidate. I think you landed a special one for sure! Best wishes and don't hesitate to throw out questions that most likely someone here has already dealt with in the past. Hopefully, we can save you time and mistakes and make the process more enjoyable.

    Well yesterday the mailman(FedEx Guy) brought me some nice goodies.



    The logo on the Lid I'm not a fan of and not going to use. Ill just have to clean up the original and swap them out.


    I also received replacement Wheels, wheel caps and all of the replacement knobs. Not sure if the knobs were different colors originally but I might have to fix that.

    More to come.
