great job ! did you do anything special to the table ? weber warns not to lift the table end by using the table, it will crack/break. even they know its made of cheap plastic.

No, but I think the originally owners moved it around by lifting on the table. The next time I take it off I'll snap a couple of pics. There are ribs underneath it to strengthen it. Ok, not by much, but at least they molded some support into the table.

I'm still doodling up a new table for the grill. I want to build a really nice table for the grill that's close to cost of a replacement unit. It's going to be a fun project.

Excellent write up and photography!

I restored an SS performer last year and it feels good to get one of these gems back into shape

Excellent job, Brother and thanks for documenting your process!

I love the SS Performers. I've never seen one in person though. They look great in pics.
