New LIME
« on: April 16, 2016, 07:36:38 PM »
So after posting a Red MLH grill here Red MLH Moreno Valley CA $10
http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/index.php?topic=21339 and not having any luck contacting the seller @Troy posted a link to an Lime in the same area. I sat and thought on whether I wanted to make the drive and after about 30 minutes I decided what the hell. I sent the seller an email and after a few email exchanges we set up a time to meet.
Sometime along the way the seller of the Red MLH handle finally responded back to me and we also set up a time to meet. I was thinking sweet two grills one trip, I'm becoming a pro at this!
Well after picking up the Lime the seller of the Red MLH hit me with the famous "You are not going to believe this" line and gave some story as to why she couldn't meet me. Oh well I have a kick ass grill in the truck already.
I start heading my way back home and find the lady had re-listed the red MLH along with another one. (Both are linked in the original posting for the MLH)
Here are some pics





Too many turkeys have been cooked on this thing. Looks like they might have had a nasty grease fire. That damper is going to take some work to get back in working form.

That's gorgeous.
It's a lime, not an avo.

Well...looks like my newness is showing. Anyway thanks. I can't  believe I got my hands on this Lime not avocado grill.

Can anyone change the title? I can't. I guess I'm stuck being the village idiot.

That's a super great find there! Looks like it'll clean up real nice.

Also, thanks for offering up agent service on that red MLH. Hope it works out for @fedex!

I can't take credit for the find at all. That was all Troy. I have started cleaning it up and so far it's been a little surprising with what was underneath all the crud.
No problem at all. Anytime you see something out this way I will do what I can to talk the wife and kids into a road trip to help out. That goes for anyone.

That's a super nice lime. I can already see that it will be close to pristine if you decide to clean it up. Congrats.

You made the right choice to take the journey and it turned out to be an adventure.   The lime is one of the better colors in that era IMHO, congrats.                               SJ

That is a very very nice Lime. I have one in that range of quality and there are not many like it.
