Default **Frame off NB Bandera Restoration**

I've been half-heartedly looking for a Bandera or BSKD but have been either too cheap or too lazy (mostly cheap!) and saw one the other day on CL, got a callback and it turned out to be seattlepitboss! Loaded it up and got it home and started tearing it down.







It is a New Braunfels Bandera, overall in decent condition, pretty tight with mostly surface rust, had been oversprayed with BBQ paint and it needs grates and a spring handle. What can't be sandblasted will get the wire brush and fresh paint. Kind of looking forward to doing the mods and playing around with this.

Already getting prettied up!



Thanks Grant!

This will be fun to watch.

Hey, thanks for the refill on the wine barrel staves. I owe you rub and a banner. I haven't forgotten. I'm out of bulk Yardbird right now. New batch comes in 5/13.

Craftsman 9/16" Deep socket & wrench!!

Anything that wasn't bolted on slid off, like the f/box lid and door. The vent handle slides out and the vanes drop from the door. This thing dosen't appear to be used much-the cabinet isn't seasoned or gunky and all the bolts are rust free. I beadblasted some of the smaller parts and painted with 1200* black semi-gloss.

I meant the firebox itself. My firebox appears to be spot welded together. So did you drill out the spot welds to dissassemble the firebox?

Looking at the pics, I think there has been a failure to communicate The firebox appears to be intact and sitting under the vert in the first two pics
