For what it is worth, a blue SSP would be high on my list for other colors.

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.
regards,
Hal

Done with the once over.

Roughed up the rust spots on the frame.
Cleaned the bowl and was surprised by how much scoring there was from the one touch system.
Straighten the retainer ring and sanded down the handle on the ash pan.
Rough buff on the blue.
Cleaned out the burner and ignitor. They work but need replaced.

Will need to fully sand the frame and repaint.
Finish the inside and outside of the kettle itself.
Replace the burner tube and either find a 5lb tank or get a new reg hose.
