Your 2000 is a grate looking grill. A lot a character there with the pine.  And its super functional too. Have you picked up a rotisserie yet? You'll love spinning those birds... Thanks for sharing all the details!

Nice work! What condition were your frames in for the wood slats? I'm new around here, but I've got an 1100 Redhead in the works and I hope it looks this nice when done! Debating whether to refurb the wood it came with or buy all new. Also would consider buying new frames for the slats if i can find the right buy. First I'm working over a Silver A Craigslist find, and I also have a black Silver B I picked up for $15 off CL that will likely be turned into a wood slat tabletop/cart to match the redhead. These old gas grills are great.

The condition of the frames was good. I cleaned them off and put a couple coats of high-gloss high heat black paint. Replaced screws with stainless steel screws. Put on the new wood. Done deal. Really looks brand new.

That's a great idea @Walchit !

I'm going to keep an eye out for a donor to do this as well.
