Default Thanks CL (SS Blue Performer EZ)

While most here look in Awe of the Red SS Performer I have been on the hunt for a Blue for about 5 years. Last night at work my CL app on my phone went off about 0230. There it was. Not looking real good but only $50.00. I sent an email right away and to surprise the guy called me back within 15 minutes. This morning I drove over to Santa Ana about 15 miles from home to check it out. It was filthy been sitting out for 15 years but always covered. He brushed the spider webs away and hosed off the top layer of dirt and I knew it would clean up nice. Opened the lid and saw the cleaning system was rusted away but that was the only rust on it. Also, it is not a gas assist which I really didn't want in the first place. We talked a few minutes about the rusted cleaning system and he asked me if I'd take it for $30 . Gave him the $$ loaded it in my truck and brought her home. Just ordered a new cleaning system from Weber for $19.00 Great way to start the weekend.

That grill has been on my list for about 3 years, but with the gasass. Glad you got it.
