$40 ss Performer rehab and other projects
« on: February 24, 2013, 05:31:53 PM »
Not bad for $40, and at least the gas assist still works.


leans a bit, needs some tightening up.


 The gas assist still works, I tested it with the tank from my blue performer.


Lids in really bad shape too

What is that dog bowl WOK thing? Nice! Nice add to the SS.

Nice isn't it. I'm hoping to finally use it this weekend. Got this in a trade from a west coast associate.

Here's a pic of it...

I assume you will be swapping out the lid.  What is up with the lid vent ? It looks like only one of the holes is open.  Is there any extra vent hole ?

Swapping out the lid is affirmative. The vent thing is an optical illusion, that's how bad the dent is.

What's the date stamp on that lid?  When I got my 1993 SS Performer, I sent Weber some photos of the rust around the handle and got a new lid for free.  I guess they are waranteed against rust for 10 years.
