Faux Gen4 Performer Table
« on: August 29, 2017, 08:56:03 AM »
I picked up a sage OTP, with the intent of ultimately transplanting it into a non-assist SSP cart.  Rather than plunk down $70 for real Gen4 table, I bought a can of rustoleum "black stainless steel" spray paint as an experiment.


First a little chip repair:




After three coats, it looks anywhere between graphite and metallic black depending on how the light hits it:




Before:


I also switched the hooks to the left side.  Next up, the updated lid bale and a different lid handle . . .

Thanks. I've had some less than quality rattle can results in the past, so I give credit to the can.

Curious to know how it handles the kettle heat. May get a small patch can of fiberglass and fix my table

This is what I used to fill the chip/crack. It cured fast and sanded easily. Only time will tell how it holds up.

Cooked on it last night with a big pile of coals banked to the table side.  No ill effects to the paint.  Installed the updated lid bale and swapped out the handle for the newer one from my WSM for a better match with the table and lid rollers.

After Swap:

@DrewZ , maybe paint the plastic on the bottom too?  It would all match then.
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.

Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.
