Thanks....I scored another parts grill today that will give me more than enough parts to finish these two ole gals.....plus I have parts arriving in the mail.......I dont like the tiny knobs on the old 1000's so I use the black knobs.....they sort of give the grill a modern edge .............The reason I scored the parts grill was because I could see it had RCPLANEBUYER grates on it.......I believe the grates sell for $175 and I got the entire grill for $30 :) That said ....given the illness.....Weberitis........I have already started restoring the dang parts grill.......it never ends!!!!!

I can't remember what I paid him (rcplanebuyer) for grates but however much they were they were totally worth every penny. I have not cleaned them more than using a Char-Gon on them, so I don't know if "used" ones will shine up but I can tell you that you could use them as ramps to do an oil change on your car, and the only bad thing I can anticipate is that they might damage your tires. Those things are incredible!

YA thanks TH.........About a year a go I snagged a freebie old school....I think it was a Genesis Gold......anyway it was during my not being selective enough era.....I was picking up rusted junk and didnt know what to do with it. Well as I wheeled it to my trailer I did as we all do.....I stopped and looked under the hood. What did I see? RCPLANEBUYER SS GRATES!!!!!!! These dang grates were as thick as hot dogs....I had never seen anything like them before but I immediately knew that the old cast irons were coming off of my keeper grill and these RC's were going on........You are 100% correct....they are bullet proof and so easy to maintain. So when I saw those hot dog thick grates in the ad for this flipper I just picked up......I didnt care about the rest of the grill.........I was laser focused on owning another set of the RC's.......IM RICH!!!!!! And yes they clean up like brand new
