Hey Mike. Hello, nice to see you check in on the forum. I hope all is going good with you.
Joe,Nice job Bruce - Meticulous as always! I may have missed it but were you able to source metal shop for your SS sandwich?
Thanks, I found it at the bottom of page 3. I don't know how I missed it. That is some thick hunk of SS! I would think just 1 of those on the inside would last a life time of grilling! The price was also amazing.Joe,
If you go back a few pages, there is an explanation of how I finally found a shop that was interested and willing to make the stainless parts for me. Without those, restoring this grill - or any 1st generation Summit with even the beginnings of fire box rust - would be ultimately useless. It’s one reason this project has languished for so long.
Here is a quick picture of what I was able to have fabricated:

Thanks, Bruce. I know it was a little overboard, but why not? I repainted some of the black wing nuts and plan to at least use one on the tank scale holder clip. They are a lot easier on your fingers then the stainless ones!Attention to details. I see you going the extra mile like always Jon. SS wing nuts. Did you already repaint the entire frame?
Joe,Your paint job is excellent. Way better than I do. How many coats you use?
