Here is the list I used. I used eyebolts instead of bolts for the grates to sit on. Mine also has a tall intake where I use a magnet instead of ball valve. For the Charcoal basket I went to a machine shop with the charcoal grate and had one welded out of I think 1" expanded metal.


Basic UDS parts list

* (1) 18" charcoal grate
* (2) 22.5" cooking grates
* (1) Weber 22.5" grill lid
* ( 1/4"x2 5/8" stainless eyebolts (4 pkg of 2)
* ( 1/4"x20 stainless nuts (2 pkg of 4)
* (16) 1/4" stainless cut washers (3 pkg of 6)
* (1) 3/4"x30" black pipe (threaded both ends)
* (2) 3/4" elbows 90 degree
* (4) 3/4"x1.5" close nipples
* ( 3/4" conduit lock nuts
* (3) 3/4" caps
* (1) 3/8"x6" stainless eyebolt
* (1) 3/8" stainless nut
* (2) 3/8" stainless cut washers

Tools, most guys have most of what you will need. But the speciality ones were for me:
Step drill bits
best but to use for the intake holes, don't need a hole saw

Shower valve socket wrench
easiest and best way to tighten the conduit nuts on the intakes for 1" intakes the wrench is 1 9/32" they come in different sizes so you have to check the conduit nut size some stores sell them as sets, some individually.

And go to this posting for how to tutorial.
