1st Weber Annual Show & Shine 2012!
« on: October 20, 2012, 06:35:14 PM »
Welcome!

If you have a special picture of a completed finished kettle project share it here in all it's glory. Set the stage, add those rare hard to find accessories and show off the custom work and restoration you did. Rare non Webers are welcome as well. Here's a couple shots of my custom Red Rat to  start things off.  8)

When did you get that one?  Is that an original Weber pan on the bottom?  Liking those wheels!  Steel handle on top and all...cool!

Thanks,

I found a little time to finish it yesterday and today because it's been a really long time since I had anything new to share. Most of you know I am a fan of the old soldiers that served so many birthday parties and get togethers including  those long hot summers when it's too hot to cook indoors. I made the bottom pan for it and think it would be great if we could reproduce the old style ones. We have lot's of great talent on this site and share a love for the oldies.  :)

Nice work Duke.....gives me a couple of ideas.  Is that what you used the BAR-B-QUE KETTLE vent on?

So what was it like when you started?  How did you make the bottom part.  It looks awesome.  Is the bottom part sitting on an existing triangle?  if not what did you use for the axle?  I like the look of that triangle...please share

I will share if you will post your finished yellow here. :D

Yes the pan just sits on the original triangle. I will email you with the details Brian. G, this one already had the vent.

Being the "Pigpen" of this small, but powerful, Weber family....
I'm really gonna have to go back thru the clean & polish threads, find the right chemicals & start gittin'er done after seeing this..... :-[

That looks tremendous !!!!

Nice! I just feel bad for that yellow guy on the far left. I bet he doesn't get many visitors. :(

Jeff it was so nice here today...I almost rallied the troops and did a new family portrait myself, but I ended up rehabbing a redhead and putting the correct wheels with the whitewalls on my Gourmet.  Here are a few pics to show them off....

Here's the gourmet witht he new whitewalls....



Here's the fade redhead with the added ash catcher....I still need to add fresh handles!

you did a great job on the yellow one!  How did you do the white walls on it?
I thought about bringing all of them out too...but just didnt have time.  Its been a couple years now since I had them all out together...plus waited cause the red 26 is still under construction.
