Default Another Weber Restoration

My friend's brother got a new gasser for Father's Day and passed his old Silver B along to my friend. He asked me to help fix it up. I put my top people on it.

Nice project, just did one myself. How does that large grate fit in?

Looks like the Pro's have a good start!

Ive got that same one in my back yard right now. Lately been having trouble getting it hot... Tried taking it apart and cleaning things up but that didnt help much. Never bothered to look at it too hard because i prefer the kettle anyway, but it would be nice to have it working again. I also notice that one doesnt have Radiants over the burners. Do they not help much?

They're on the way. The old ones were completely rusted through. I'm replacing with stainless ones I got off of e-bay.

I have one too, best Gasser I've owned. Gets up to 500F in 10-15 minutes. But here in Vegas it starts out at like 150-160 before lit. Nice snag!
