This was a throw away black Performer with a caved in lid and a cracked table. Pop out the lid, a little paint, a new table, and it's my most used. Best deal around. Lives outside in the elements.



Best color of the high temp paints and single application. Holding up well.

All looking great! We are missing Dark Green and Grey from the line ups. Anyone with Red(from Gen1) into Gen2 frame?

I can help with the dark green.  This was the one I used for the Performer Table Restoration article.  It has since left my foster care and moved on to a new owner.





@56MPG  @I don't think it is a down under thing.  Although I never noticed the difference, several of both styles have gone through my foster care.  Here is another Gen 2 I am working on that has the "full metal jacket".  The green one above has the cut out style panels. Maybe a design or supplier change of the panel manufacturer?

Red was never offered in Gen2 so kind of special to have Red Gen2. Keep in mind, that Red Gen1 bowl handle shows thru. the large gap on Gen 2 table. Blue Gen1 SSP already stock.

I also have a fully restored Red SSP and still working on Gen2 all stainless steel table C&B Lime I am thinking about switching. No Gap on Gen2 SS table so no bowl handle showing for me.

Go ahead and try it out and see if you like it. As for me, not sure yet.

Just looked back at the first Gen II I had, and it's a FMJ version; DO(2005) kettle. My new Gen II is a DZ (2008). Maybe the earlier Gen IIs were all FMJs?



By the way, if you have a chance to swap in a red like I did, I highly recommend it! The new table would make it even better!
