18" Redhead
« on: August 07, 2013, 04:46:41 PM »
My Score off CL.  Thanks to Ted and Jeff for helping me getting this very fine grill.   It needs a little bit of cleaning and some new handles.  Jeff picked it up for me and Ted brought it home and I cannot thank you guys enough.

Looks good Eric. Glad it made its way home safely. There's really something about those redheads that make it hard to look away.

Eric, it was a pleasure to help a fellow club member out.  It has some rough spots but it is a grill from 1986 afterall.  A bath and some handles and it will look very nice.
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

Has anyone had any much luck painting kettles with chipped out areas?

Not yet, but that little experiment is coming up...... 8)

Also, filling the chips, or filling & painting the whole thing?

I saw a great video on Youtube (Yup, Yup) by John the Picker on how to properly paint your Kettle.  ;)

Then he cooked some great charcoaled up food yup, yup.

I have painted the spots on my green kettle and blue SS with some success (not exact color matches by any means), but I have not needed to paint a red yet. I sprayed the blue with 1200 degree manifold paint, then 500 degree engine paint (because the color was closer), and it has held up without a hitch so far on both the bowl and the lid.  The green was painted with a 500 degree grill paint and while it is starting to pop off from the bowl, it works well on the lid.

I will be doing just that.  A clean up and new handles.  I was curious if anybody has tried painting them.
