Used egg refurbished

I recently bought my parents a used medium egg that came with a nest and plate setter. I took the whole thing apart and took everything back down to metal and sprayed everything with the Rustoleum high heat paint. I also got them some composite shelves and a new CI grate and put on a new gasket. Looks pretty good now.

    Wow! Who could tell its been refurbished. Looks as good as the medium I just got. How much did you pay for it if I may ask.

    It's the 84" 5/8" Flat Rutland gasket. There are instructions on Naked Whiz on how to do it and they are available on Amazon for either $6.99 or $7.99.

    I paid $340 for it with the nest, platesetter, and cover (Craigslist). I also found the composite shelves on Ebay for $65 brand new. The firebox was shattered but the guy had gone out and got a brand new firebox that had never been used that it came with.
  • You are a good son. They are going to love it.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Nice work! Indeed better than new!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Going to be a shame when your parents get that beautiful and spanking clean egg all smokey and greasy. :laugh: ;)
  • What kind of gasket is that?
  • That is Rutland fireplace gasket I buy it at my local fireplace store.They sell it off the roll enough for my med cost about three bucks. I also ude Permatex ultra copper to glue it down. I only use the gasket on the base not the dome
