I managed to find a local metal fab shop wthin about two miles down the road..I was able two purchase smaller pieces of the expanded metals real cheap, as they were left over cuts from previous jobs.
The ash pan is just a lid from a 30 gal drum that they gave me from the reconditioned barrel purchase...Then I bought the other piece of flat stock from the metal fab dudes and worked it into a diameter that fit into the drum lid... All the metals cost only about 15$..And I have some left over for future builds....
What really hurt $$wise was the stainless bolts and hardware, tools that I didn't have layin' around, and gas money drivin' around to pick things up.....
Still can't find that used webber kettle...Darn!
Rainin' too hard for any yard sales....
UDS...She'll be better lookin' one day
