Nice work, L!  Couldn't find the one-handled-coloured-bowl 18 like your original desire, eh?

Looks beauty!  :D 8)

yep........ Don't rub it in.  8)

Nope, the shield is 100% intact with the same clearance as a 22.5" MT.

That is so cool, gums! 

Did you fab up your own lid bale, or did the larger one work?

It's an 18.5" weber OTP lid bale! Courtesy of Agent G (that's actually the name he prefers) lol.

I am sorry folks - I don't get this.
Was this manufactured by you Gummi or is this a genuine 18er MT?  sorry if that's a noob question.

that is really cool, an 18 OTG is most certainly on my bucket list, this would be a dream come true.

Wow, nice project PB!

So you were just able to drill the side of the handle to accept the Master Touch Therm and aluminum cover?    (Thinking of a future project over here!)    :o
Interested in ANY offset handle SJs you may have.

Did you slice the top of the handle and re-form it for higher clearance?
