Default Webr performer...what to look for?

I think I may have a lead on a performer for 50.00 I think that is a good deal. But I really want to know what to look for. Areas of concern? I dont think it is a "touch and go" gas ignite ....But not sure. Hoping i can see it tomorrow after work. If all goes well.

I know Weber...typo....little excited

The key to getting things like this- email them with "Grill- i'll give you 55" in the subject line. I get a ton of underpriced items this way. It cuts me to the front of the line and keeps the item reserved until i can get there.

That said, for 50 dollars, it might not be in the best shape. It'd have to be pretty beat up for me to reject it for 50 (or 55) bucks.

Also- you will probably have to disassemble it to get it into a car.

It's probably a performer but it *might* be a one touch platinum.

It looks to be worth every penny hes asking. I snatch it before someone else does.

Look at the whole thing for any damage. Look for missing parts and look at the cooking grate to see what condition it is in.

You can't expect perfect at that price. From the pic alone it is a good price. If it has gas ignition or is super clean that is a bonus. But it!
