Hi guys

Here's where it stands now.



Finished painting the black pattern on top of the red. I guess it came out ok. Could have maybe benefited from a more talented painter. A master painter.



It was damn hard trying to get an even finish. Slightly too much pressure and the roller left a darker spot. The fact that the surface is round doesn't help either.



I might try to even out a few lighter patches, but this is pretty much the finished look.

Next up is the hinge kit. It's in real bad shape. Stay tuned :)

Great job and great thread.

I read somewhere on this forum that the loss of the imperialkamado.com website was a shame, because all of Mako's restoration secrets were on there (ie: how to repair the earthenware, etc).

I just wanted to let you all know that business operations for Imperial Kamado was transferred over to Kamado King Inc a couple years ago. I have all of Mako's Imperial restorations secrets, as well as a full history of the Imperial Kamado, and will be transferring this stuff over to our new site, www.kamadobbq.com

This is being done to "preserve" all of this lost information and history of imperial kamado. Please be patient with me, as this will take some time. I am busy setting up the new site with other features. We do have a BLOG section for Q&A on Imperial Kamado History, so feel free to stop by and drop us a comment. Augie will get back to you. He is the owner and opened his first imperial kamado stores in 1974.

Well, that's all, I just thought I would share the update.

Happy grilling , and great site! -Justin Kamado King Inc.

Anyone know why all the pictures in this thread are boxes with a red x in them when I look at it?

Yea, me too. That sucks. I can't even edit the posts to try to fix it.

You can open a picture if you open it in a new tab. Maybe the image hoster has prevented direct linking to the images..
