1993 Weber Performer - new to forum
 
New member to the forum here. Last night, I picked up a weber performer (date code P) off craigslist for a good price. It is a stainless steel model with some great extras including a cast iron searing grill, indirect charcoal holders (the heavy duty kind), extra grill grates, etc. I managed to call the guy 10 minutes after he listed it and bought it right away. Here is the CL posting

I saw some blue underneath the flat black finish on the kettle. After I took it apart, a few minutes with some steel wool confirmed my suspicions - the grill was originally blue! Here is a picture of the bottom of the kettle after 30 minutes of rubbing, compared to the top of the kettle as I purchased it. Once this is cleaned up, I think it is going to be a nice looking Performer. Will post some pics when the restoration is complete.

My thoughts exactly. Other than some very light crazing, the blue finish looks great - no holes or big dents. In any case, I can't understand why some previous owner chose cheap, flat black paint to cover the blue.

I am going to get this Performer back to its original glory!
