I'm not trying to highjack your thread but wanted to post pic's of my recent Brinkmann Cimarron rehab. Mine is not the deluxe version. I completed the rehab about 2 weeks ago. Had it sand blasted, it was as rusty as yours if not worse. I added a deflector plate, charcoal basket and replaced the wire shelf on front with a cedar shelf. For the paint I used high temp black then coated with high temp gloss. The inside looks like I painted it but that's just the seasoning oil. Oh yeah, I also used high temp felt (BGE style) to seal my doors.
I wish you the best in your rehab project, I had a lot of fun with mine. I really like the smoke flavor the offset. It also holds heat very well.
Sorry, I'm having issues with Flickr. I don't think I'm going to be able to post pic's from it. Much easier from Photobucket!
Here she is all done.

Reason: Pic's didn't post
