Default Restoring a 1987 Weber Kettle

I was just given an old Weber kettle (3 daisy wheels on bottom) and was looking to restore it.

Several questions come to mind if anyone can provide answers as I am a newbie at this.
1) Can't I prep the kettle (clean, sand etc) and just repaint the entire kettle with high temp (Rustoleum 1200 degree) paint?
2) Should I even try the trouble of restoring the bottom parts (some rust and dings in these parts) or should I just buy the $23 kit for the bottom that gives you everything from the kettle down?
I plan on takling it all apart & cleaning etc. I will replace the rusted screws and was planning on sanding the handles and go with something that will show off teh wood contrasted against the black kettle. All input & thoughts welcome.
