Default Rehab for my newe $200 CL Brinkman Cimmaron


Took delivery today on a CL found Brinkman. Initial impression is that it's actually a very compact unit. Long, but narrow and not tall. Also, speaking of tall, seems a bit low to the ground. Here are some initial considerations. Any input or comment is welcomed.
-Owner said temp gauge is broken. Looks like Brinkman still stocs them for $40, should I stay with Brinkman gauge or is there something better and or cheaper to use?
-Rust! Does this look like a candidate for sandblasting? I have an aircompressor and attachments for blasting seem reasonable enough
-Heat deflector. I assume I'll need to do something with the area between the firebox and cook area.
-rehab the burner. New hose right? Anything else? Anyone know a good vendor for hoses and such?
