Default CL Score - Redhead

Finally found a redhead on Craiglist.

Since there is no Vent Code and it has the patent number, I figure it is a 70's model before 1979.

An 18" kettle for $15.00. It does have 3 chips in the coating. One is about the diameter of a coke can. Not sure if I will try to mask off and paint with the dupli engine paint.

Here's the original shape:




After a bit of work:




Sanded the handle and stained a bit:

Glad you saved her! Does the top vent say pat pending? If so she is '68-'70.

Now, get those legs in the right place :D

Next, get some steel wool and some alum polish ! Or just buy a new legs/wheels/triangle/ash catcher kit from weber like I did lol. A lot easier!

Nothin cooks like a redhead! Can't wait to see updated pics.

No it does not say pat pending. It has the patent number. Ok, I will put the legs on the right way.
