Got this 18Ē WW from WKC member @dwnthehatch this past weekend.  We are thinking í69 -Ď70? 

Got the bottom vents freed up and decided to do a little burn off tonight.  Hasnít been fired up for at least 5 years and who knows before that.  The legs are on caddy wampus, which Iím hoping to correct, but one of the sockets has one maybe two welds that have rusted through.  So it may stay that way.  Will need to get some new grates and do some more RR, but itís in pretty great shape for a +50 year old!

Looking forward to continuing to clean this old guy up and get it in the rotation.  Iíll get some new pics once we make a little more progress.

Cheers!

Got my old gray fix up finished this weekend!  Legs are on correct now. Had to reattach a socket in the process with some SS hardware, but itís very solid now.  Cleaned everything up nice, but not too nice [emoji6].  Added a @zavod44 custom cherry handle and weíre ready to cook on it for the next +50 years!

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill
