"Modern" MT - Red!
« on: August 11, 2017, 04:05:12 PM »
Yep, I've got one!

Well... the legs and triangle to a modern MT, anyway.

LOVE the height on this... I think I've got a new daily cooker.

Need to shine up the ash pan, get the correct wheels, and get some handles. Do I go with zavod handles, or try to source some black Mastertouch ones?

Nice look Bob, love the tallboy. For handles, I've always liked a lighter wood on a redhead.  ymmv.   8)

Looks good Bob.  Where did you get the leg kit? How do the push button legs fit in the old sockets?

The triangle came from @swamprb, along with a few other items. The legs were ordered from Weber. Got a lucky break and spoke with a rep who let me purchase them no questions asked. The legs are a nice tight fit with the sockets... I left the push buttons out.

I've been wanting to do this for quite awhile. Super stoked to finally have acquired all of the necessary components!
