Here's a video of my Weber restoration project
« on: September 17, 2018, 03:05:35 PM »
Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyI2fdqGQHY

The model is a "Weber Genesis Silver B."

I got the replacement burner tubes and flavorizing bars off Amazon.

The paint is a high-heat spray paint for Brake calipers (withstands 900 degrees F) from Walmart.

Total time spent was about 3 or 4 hours. The total cost of the restoration was $61.29

Considering brand new Weber grills similar to this model sell for 500 to 700 dollars, I'd say it was a pretty good deal!

Nice.   Will be interesting to see how the red painted hood holds up.         If you find another one to do, I'd recommend an angle grinder ($12 from Harbor Freight) and a 4 inch cup wire brush for the inside of the firebox.  Also, if/when the Rustoleum 2x starts flaking off, Dawn works wonders on the Thermoplastic tables and endcaps.
