Hello! From Australia 🇦🇺
« on: November 09, 2022, 07:31:14 PM »
Hi all!

I'm a complete novice when it comes to all things Weber!
I have been cooking with them for years but I know nothing beyond basic skills.

I have recently acquired 2 Model H Weber kettles and I have decided to take on the mammoth task of restoring them to as 'like new' as possible 😆
I have a red and orange/brown and they are both in pretty sad condition, missing parts etc.

I would love it if anyone could point me in the direction of any possible information regarding this particular model. 71024 -1986 H model.
Their history, popularity, value.. (although I highly doubt I will be selling either of them after all this work, I've already grown quite attached 😅)
