First off, I could not get the other Fathers Day thread to the top of the list when I posted, so I'll start a new one.

What do all the dad's want for Father's Day this year? I'm getting the old man a Vexilar fl8 pro pack from The Bass Pro Shop. $199 ($299 normally) on clearance right now. That's a sweet deal. This will also help him catch more fish this ice season since his eyes are always glued to watching my flasher.

Marquette.  His efforts in HS resulted in some nice scholarships which made it affordable and comparable to UWM.

Powder coat is baked on. The bottom will bake off after a few bbq's. The top would last longer as it would not get as hot. We use powder coat at work and we burn off bad paint jobs. I would use grill paint. You can get different colors instead of Model T black.

I was wondering powder coat would stand up to heat.  I might just go with the grill paint.

Nice project, I'd wonder how the powder coating would hold up to the heat it may flake off.

I was thinking about getting it powder coated.  Would that be overkill?  Should I just use the black grill paint on it?  Not sure what powder coating will cost.

My boy who is going to school for engineering in the fall felt that anyone worth their salt should know how to weld.  So he took welding his senior year. He welded me a charcoal grill for FD and to get his A for the class.  Good boy! Nice welds.
