That's awesome Jeremy! I would've had a real hard time letting it go and 99.9% wouldn't have let it go. Good on the Mrs..

Even to a newbie to these parts like me, that's a cool story. Love how you're bringing new life back to Opal.

Excellent, but a very sad back story. Great job on the revitalization project.

Awesome welds. Have you thought about a firebox, or does she cook fine as-is?

Great story. But those welds! Do you work in the oil patch? Can't wait to see the finished product.

If your grates are higher in back maybe you just didn't level them when you tacked to the legs.

Good! I hope it helps you out! It was the only way I could come up with to transfer the radius properly. I just used a 4” cutoff wheel

Thanks Sako, I used to be that way but no longer, I realized that the memories are independent of the object. I’ll pitch anything now

Didn’t really think of it but she’s a good cooker as is!

When I tacked the legs I leveled the front shelf, opened the door and said, hmmmm. So I rolled the cooker back to split the difference between the front shelf and the cook grate, that was a no go. The front shelf obviously leaned back, so I decided to level the front shelf and cut off and relocate the cook grates.
