    My Skyline Restoration Pics

    Hello everyone. I wanted to share some pictures of my first Skyline restoration. I was in Las Vegas on business and happened to find this grill for sale on Offer Up. I happened to drive and it worked out great because I was able to just pick up the grill from a nice couple. I had fun working on this grill. So far Iíve done this and an 1100 Red Head. Last week I landed a Genesis 3000 for $45! Thatís sitting behind my garage. I will start that in the next few weeks. My Wife thinks Iím crazy, but she supports my hobbies. Thank you to everyone who helps me with my many questions about these beautiful grills. Here is a link to the Skyline and my Red Head. Thank you. Robert

    Very nice. Looks like someone else has caught the Weber rehab bug.
    I would suggest on future grills to remove the end caps from the grill lid before cleaning and painting. It makes things soooo much easier.

    What kind of wood did you use to replace the Genesis 1100 slats with and what did you use to finish them?

    Strong work Robert! They both look great.
    Why didnít you remove the endcaps when you repainted them? Just curious, I had no trouble breaking mine down which made them easier to handle.
    One of these days I will find my dream ďSkylineĒ, well, I hope so.
    I didnít notice Bruceís comment to the same end, he recommended that when I did mine. Iím going to have to repaint mine, maybe this summer. When I did them I only had flat paint but the caps should be like yours! Canít have it not be right now, can I?
    Getting it right is not as easy as some of you guys make it look!
