Default Humpty dumpy, weber one touch gold grill

Installed the new one-touch cleaning system and ash catcher ring I ordered from Weber. Cleaned everying with 00 steel wood, even the bowl and lid. The steel wool worked good, thanks "swamprb". Did not scratch the finish, like I thought it would. I had a few parts from old kettles and I used the best of them for the assembly, like wheels and legs.

When I called Weber to just get some prices for the parts I wanted to replace and see if there were any discount codes going on or free shipping. They said there were none. They gave me the prices and asked if I was ready to order. I said I would rather wait till they did have something going for discounts. They said "Do you want a discount? I can can give you a discount". I said sure! They told me the new prices and it was something like 45% off of what they just quoted. Sold! I bought the parts and a couple of other small things. It was delivered the next day.

I don't know why they gave me the discount. I told them that I was fixing up a old kettle that was abused and was giving to me for free. This was the 3rd time that I have bought weber kettle parts. They know that I have a used performer. They let me register it after I told them that I bought it on craigslist. So far I have bought 3 new kettles in my lifetime.
Weber is a great American Company!

Looking at the after photo, I think you put it together wrong. How will you keep the meat from falling off?

He should buy the performer he (you) wants.
