Mine was pop riveted in and could easily be drilled out to remove it. I can see the need in a closed cabinet with the propane tank below it if you had a nuclear grease fire in the pan. With the tank off to the side and open cart in the 1000-3000’s I don’t think it would be an issue.They are typically welded on with weak pressure welds and often times fall off which might have happened to yours. I am not sure if Weber made them without the heat shield.
Thanks Dan! I had forgotten you had posted that earlier.https://tvwbb.com/threads/genesis-1000-porcelain-drip-tray.88032/post-986423

Those are awesome. Those look like Genesis 1000 deep box pans. I wish I had a forever drip pan for mine.Very nice! Do you have any idea how long it took to make those? Also, if I had to guess, I would say those are made from 18 or 20 gauge material?
You were right, it's brake. But when you tell someone where to bend it, it is "break". Confusing.
Yup! They are for my forever Genesis 2s (which could use a cleaning. BUT, with the materials used in the restore, It won’t hurt to wait and clean them in a couple of years…)Those are awesome. Those look like Genesis 1000 deep box pans. I wish I had a forever drip pan for mine.
Well, my company and the pipe fitter contractor that did the welding are charging over $100/ hr. now. Working as maintenance contractors has the advantages that we get to do this work on the side.Thanks, G!
Just for reference, where I live (SoCal), 14 years ago, TIG welding shops were charging $50/hr with a $50 minimum.
Did you keep the templates? Say yes. Would you like to upload them to the forum in case others would like to try or have it done?I believe it’s 20ga.
I made templates, cut out the pieces, punched the hole and worked the brake. That only took a couple or three hours on my part for the first one. No hurry on my part. Second one was quicker. The welding took a couple of hours each as they had time.
