The water heaters are 1/8 inch thick. I think. I will double check that. Also it will have a convection plate. The inside of these water heaters are coated with a vitreous glass. (I googled it). I had to grind like hell to get it off so I can weld on the inside. I tried to melt it off with a rose bud on the torch. It melted then hardened right back up.
The charcoal grill side was started by someone else who lost interest. Basically they cut the water heater in half and put some crappy hinges on. I took it and ran with it. I would have done it a little different but its good. I changes some stuff and made it my own.
That was a last minute thing. I thought hey lets make the cart into a trailer and throw this charcoal grill on the other side. I drew the trailer design on the floor with a piece of chalk and here we are.
Made a little progress. There was a little warping of the metal when I welded it. Not bad. Just needs a little tweaking. I got the doors on. Now that it rained we will be stuck in the shop. Maybe I can have it done by the end of the week. We are on the down hill slide. I really want it done by memorial weekend.
