OK guys, this is what I did. I sanded them down real good and then welded them together. Cleaned the metal again. Washed them down with muratic acid solution (Cheap Buzz there) rinsed real good. Washed in vinegar(Apple cider, not red wine) and rinsed. Scotch brite and Comet, rinse. Self etching primer, and black paint, clear coat. The grill goes in tonight. I will be posting a new photo as my avatar over the weekend for all to see. The real proof will be how does it weather thru the next few months.
Dirtbag, I'm worried about you and your nutritional habits
