Genesis 4000 Build (pic heavy)
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:01:51 PM »
Hey all, finally finished my Genesis project that I started last spring. Cut and stained the slats, sandblasted the firebox and lid side panels and collected a few needed parts. Then our youngest daughter was born 3 months early. Needless to say, the genesis went on the back burner.  Our baby is now thriving, thank the good Lord. So I got back at it a few weeks ago. My plan is to keep this grill forever so I went all out. The manifold, burners, igniter, flavorizers, grates, wheels, bottom tray, catch pan holder, warming racks, knobs and thermometer are all brand new. I found a new old stock set of the heavy ss summit grates and the flavorizers are rcplanebuyer. I used Rustoleum high heat ultra for all the metal, golden oak stain and helmsman for the slats. The toughest decision was the lid color. I had a few options in the bone yard, I opted for the dark charcoal gray lid, thought it looked the nicest. I believe it was a Target offering back in the day. I wanted to use the original emblem but there was a little porcelain flaking on the lid around the edges so I used a larger new version to cover it up. Unfortunately I don't have any before pics, I kind of pieced it together from multiple donors.... Looking forward to years of good cooks on this grill and passing it on to my daughters someday, along with a bunch of kettles!

Awesome work on the refurb! My brother just bought that exact grill in the Denver area for $50 with the intentions of doing the same I will send him to this post.

Did you add the foldable shelf on the right? The one Himey is referring to does not have a shelf on the right side.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys! @BradHimes, I had a genesis in the boneyard that had both left and right side folding shelves. Took it off there along with the side burner.

Nice planter. The gasser looks good too. 8) I'm sure it will last a long time as long as you keep it out of the snow

Great restore.  How much did it cost to sandblast that firebox?

@crumbsnatcher, I had it done last year so I'm trying to remember. I think it was in the $45 range, just for the box. The lid end caps I did myself at a buddies house.
