2005 Genesis silver c
« on: February 20, 2017, 06:06:13 AM »
I picked up an abused Genesis silver c yesterday for $10.  Needed a major cleaning for sure.

The good:
The porcelain coated grates are in excellent but greasy condition.
The plastic work surfaces are also in great condition.
Side burner in great condition
Minimal rust on the frame.

The bad:
Need new burner tubes
Need new flavorizer bars
Paint on the aluminum lid sides and firebox is peeling/chipping
The bottom panel on the cart is rusted

I priced out a replacement bottom panel and it is going for over $150!  There are other bottom panels for other weber models for under $30 but not for the one I need. The bottom panel model is 60427.

Anyone have some workarounds for the bottom panel?

Question, what is wrong with the burners?, I have worked on many of these and most cases, the issue is with the crossover tubes.

Are you planning on keeping this grill or flipping?

Let's get some pics up in here.......

Two out three burners including the cross over tube were rusted and faling apart, there was no saving them.

 For that price I would go to a weld fabricating shop and get one made,then coat it with POR-15 from Eastwood this will stop the corrosion used on car frames and developed for the Navy.
I have used this on my 08 Genny bottom panel 2 years ago and no issues since.
Coat then paint to cover from UV light with color of your choice.
