Thanks Smile

Our last fireworks club shoot of the year is on the 30th.... Want to have everything done by then to show it off.

Ended up going with sprayable high temp rustolium 1k deg for the cookers, and implement paint/primer from the farm store for the rest.
sprayed with a home depot hvlp gun, really impressed by how good it did.

Thanks for the nice words everyone!

Here it is after my buddy the body man did his body putty trick on the cabinet doors. Made those welds just disappear! Primed and ready to figure out a paint color

-I want to add some color to break up the black.
Looking for opinions... . My thought was to paint the cabinet doors Red, Wheels White.
There will be a 2 door tool box above the sink that will need to be painted as well. -Was thinking White with Red doors.

Looking good. It was good talking to you today. Any decision on the counter top?

Aluminum paint adds a nice shiny touch to contrast the black.

Going to go look at Stel's in the morning. thinking that's the way I'm going to go for now.

....that's primer you see, thinking red for the doors.

....anyone ever use that new rustoleum stainless steel paint?

Had a nice visit with Stel Saturday morning. Great Rig! Lot of though went into that thing. Wish my welds looked like that.

I'm sold on the tile. My wife said Black and Red checker board, so that's what it gets. Taking Thur & Fri as vacation since the kids are off school to hopefully punch through a lot.

This weekend I got the propane plumbing 95% done, bought a job box for wood storage, painted it, and got the cabinet doors painted.

Propane- From the 2 40# tanks- flexible line to ball valves into 1/2" black iron. ACME fitting (with ball valve) on the front of the trailer next to the 1st turkey fryer. Then T off to the big gas grill (pic below) - each has it's own regulator and needle valve. Then T to go to water heater (with valve)- has low pressure regulator. then on to the back of the trailer to another ACME fitting (with valve) for KAM torch- or whatever appliance you might want to use. Will be keeping a 15' propane hose on the trailer with POL on one end, ACME on the other. -will be handy for a patio heater in the winter me thinks.

Ran into problems painting... friend of mine, body guy, came by to help. He thinned the tractor paint to the consistency that car paint would be.. and it ran, bad.

This morning I sanded it all down and re-painted.

Job box for wood storage is now painted. It was a funny feeling to bring home a pretty new box, and go right to it with a grinder! Smile Had to grind the welds down to make it fit in the hole on the trailer.

High temp paint on the bottom where it will be next to the firebox, top is just the tractor paint, far enough away from the fire, it should be fine.



repainted the doors





soft copper ran.

Latches on the doors.
Made a angle iron top with 3/4 plywood to attach the counter to. It will get carriage bolts through the wood, angle and into the angle iron top of the cabinet. So if I ever want to remove it, it just unbolts.

Sink test fit.

tomorrow it gets any final welding I can think of, then moving it to my brother's shed for electrical/plumbing because of the rain this weekend.

Thanks guys. Smile


It's easy... buy a 20' trailer for a 2 foot smoker..... and then see the need to fill the space Smile

Just got done sanding an old toolbox. Get the kids to bed and the night shift is going to paint it. Made a pot of coffee at 2pm, I think I have another hour before the last of it wears off and I just drop.

Went with Granite Tile- It's heavy, but it's a very slick surface, good for food service.

Construction adhesive, with a little bit in between each tile to they aren't rubbing against each other. Silicone around all the edges, and anywhere the grout lines needed a little fill.

The way my frame work was, I was only able to get 2 of the sink clips in place, siliconed the crap out of it, and put some weight to hold it down. It's not going anywhere.

Propane is ran, couple small leaks to work out.

Next update will have pictures of the drain and water setup



Propane is setup so I can run off 2 tanks at the same time if demand is high and it's cold outside. The hoses are made long enough so they can also reach the ground hooked to a 20lb cylinder in case you run both 40's empty.
