It will handle the heat, but it's the direct flame that's going to burn it. Make sure you use baskets and keep the charcoal off of the bowl.

Did you grind off the original finish from the entire grill?  8)

No just the areas most affected by the welding.

Nice catch, you are correct, the redhead has the pat. 3538906 on the vent. I also had a brownie that was a K code I was working on at the same time. Too much weber in my head I guess  :-[.  I'll edit the original post. Thanks!

Have a total of 3 cooks on rattle can red. It's now sporting a black paint burn where the charcoal basket was placed. I did have the basket very close to the edge to make room for a rotisserie and rib-o-lator. Oh well, it's still a great cooker!

The high heat will only add character and improve it. There's something nostalgic about a well used kettle. Here's, "Just a picture I love".
