Default CL Score again!

Well I have been having my eye on a Weber Performer for a while. I saw one pop up on craiglist for $100. I contacted the owner and he still had it. You can tell the orginal owner got his use out of it. I talked him down to $50 for it!

Here it is after I unloaded it from my car. It is missing the wheel caps for the back wheel. Also one of the front wheel locks is broken and stuck in the lock position.

The biggest thing is that lid is beat up but still useable. Also the back rail plating has some rust on it. I can probably restore it with a wire brush and some paint, or replace it.

It was in pretty good condition considering it is a 2005.

I need to stop growing my cooker collection for now. My deck is starting to get a tad crowded. I'll post a family shot when it stops raining.

Good grab.
You can find those locking plastic casters at Lowe's & Home Depot for very little $.
Due to rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot
