  • Useless gas tank for second bbq grill, it's a junk too
  • Door handles
  • Door hinges for caps of grills
  • Little handles
  • Metal tubes for bbq legs. You can use any metal tubes you have
  • Thin metal tubes for strengthening construction of grill
  • Latch for bbq's cap
  • Bolts and nuts

  • Hacksaw or angle-grinder for cutting metal
  • Drill
  • Wrenchs, pliers and screwdriver

    Little cap (2) is attached to grill with two bolts and nuts. It can easily turn around axis of bolts.
    To open and close big cap you need to attach it with door hinges by bolts and nuts.

    To make grill more comfortable to transportation, fix two door handles (6) on each side of grill.
