Got a Gen1 SS Blue for Xmas as a forced gift
« on: December 26, 2018, 08:40:09 PM »
Ran across a blue Gen 1 performer for sale. I know I shouldn't be buying myself gifts right before xmas...well I have a buddy that was a roommate for about 15 years and we have small xmas parties and exchange gifts with our respective families after all the other parties. Long story shorter and I text him and he hadn't got me anything so I picked him up so he can buy me the grill.  :D ;) ::)

That is a classic!  Have fun with the restoration.  I have a spare bottom wire shelf if you need it.

NICE.  I have a red SSP, which is what I usually cook on. 

It was in great shape having sat inside a business for quite a few years unused & before that the business owner lived in a airplane hanger & allegedly kept it inside when not in use.  There was a bit of dust on in, plenty of spent ash inside & a buildup of grime inside.  But really in sweet shape.  I'd kind of like another SSP in another color, but they take up quite a bit of real estate. 
regards,
Hal

Thanks the shelf isnt too bad I think that was resting on too it's the cross bar supports and HC ash catcher.

I would love to add a red mist ssp to the collection but I keep missing those. You are right on the real estate. I have started leaving some of the less charished grills at my families houses to make room and so I have a cooker no matter who's house we are at.

Rust on the pan handle was pretty deep but it's still strong. Only thing missing was a 5lbs tank I will probably just put a new regulator on it anyway. Got the all thread in the support and have it loosely on there now. I will need you strip and paint the frame this spring so not going to tighten it all down too much.

Ha! I was MartyG then. So many old friends when the WCK was young. So many new friends now. New faces, but the same old WKC shines on.
