Yah, that was probably and easy flip as the internals were all probably still good.
I'm going to pickup an old on the go portable grill in a couple hours. It's got three of the wooden handles still in good shape. I'm getting it for super cheap. I plan on doing what you did. Buy it, swap out the handles for plastic ones, then just sell it for what I paid for it.The owner had it stored somewhere and never used it. It was one which still had the three individual vents at the bottom. No sweeper. But I have no use for it. I just wanted the handles.

Hey guys, give me your thoughts on this one. It's not gas assist, but had a cool Cypress replacement table. $50 is a nice price. He sent pictures and no bad rust on lid or bowl.
Literally on the way to get it. Any reason to think I couldn't flip this one?
The $30 green Performer would have been hard to pass up. Those SS ones are so easy to rehab into like new condition, assuming bowl and lid in decent shapeWell, with my tax season still going on - apparently now lasting until July 15 - while also trying to embrace the idea of moving, now is not the time to buy anything else. But, wow...I have passed on an almost new 3-burner Spirit II with a nice cover for only $100 (SOLD in a day), a $30 decent looking green SS Performer with the hard to find 5lb tank, and some other pretty sweet deals! This is really hard.
My limited scanning of where we are moving to shows that there is a lot less available there. I had hoped that being in the Midwest would open up more Weber stuff. Pretty much it looks like you need to get close to Chicago (too far) to really find cool stuff. Oh well, we will see how it all works out.
If things go much further south it may become a buyers market for used grills. Only problem will be then that few will want to buy them after they are refurbished. Let's hope and pray it doesn't get that bad or stay down for a protracted time. Stay safe everyone.
I ended up grabbing this one. With a little elbow grease, few new SS bolts, and painting the frame I think I could make a little money. Will probably make a package deal with it and include that free chimney and some charcoal I got from previous deal.For keeper or re-sell? It could be a decent keeper, but I don't think you can hope to make any real profit on it.
Maybe you could just have him set it outside and the pay him with Venmo or PayPal if he has an account.Jon, I think you're correct. I found a nice green non-assist performer for $40, five minuets away. I want to convert my gas kettle back to charcoal and sell it and move the gas kit into the performer. I called and the guy said he had just taken the ad down, he didn't want any contact with the COVID-19 going on.
I gave him my number and told him I would take it and to give me a call when he was ready to sell it. We shall see if that happens.
