sweet work Winz ;D
love it  8) 8)

whats the temp? :P


 Golly, I remember that scene......he's standing there with the Thermapen thru the vent, watching it go up & calling off the rising temp, while Gummi's snapping away, until his knuckles got too hot..................memorable............. 8)

Winz - can you send me the photos of the build? I'd like to get them for the customs gallery.

Hey Winz..
That ereplacements PN is showing Grey Rollers, are you sure that is the one you bought?

Also, for $50, you got a deal on the powder coating. By the time I buy sandpaper and paint it would be $10 to $15, so well worth it.. I'll start shipping yo my frames for refurbishing..Lol..

Also, will get you a payment later today.. Thanks!

I know they look grey in that picture, but that is because they have a powder-like "coating" on them.  When I got mine, a quick rinse with water and the white coating washed away, leaving black rollers.

Got your paypal this morning - thank you.

Those kettles look awesome and a matching pair is even better.  Really liked how your project turned out.

Winz, you stated that you replaced the stock performer ss bowl and lid with a 2014 copper performer bowl and lid..

what if i want to replace the stock one with a a OTS 22" bowl?  Can it be done using the existing mounting hardware on the SS performer?

Thanks buckie.

@mrgoodbar67 - all the dimensions are the same, however you would be missing two things: 
1) the performer bowls have two tabs welded to the sides to allow mounting in the cart.  Other members here have removed them from performer bowls and reattached them to OTG/OTS bowls.  I have not done it, but it can be done.   
2) if you want gas assist, you will need to modify the OTG/OTS bowl.  pbe gummi bear has done this modification.  Send him a PM and he will help you out.


Good luck!

Oh, great.  Didnt know we could do that.  Thank you @1buckie

@Winz- hmmmm ill have to search on here to see if anyone has done this mod and placed a OTS/ OTG on to the SS performer using another method besides attaching the stock SS tabs to the new bowl?

Outstandingi work!  I have to know, where did you get those 8" steel wheels with the solid rubber tires?  I've been wanting to replace those lousy plastic things on my Weber since like forever.

Thanks in advance.
