I can't think of any problems with using copper pipe for low pressure lp. I'd use steel if it were unregulated, straight off the tank...

Nice rig!

Nice setup also from this end.
BTW, I have a 54 Bug with 56 Porsche Speedsteer engine, trans and those big aluminum brakes, custom tuned muffler.

You have the Combi with the curved roof windows?

Bus in background is a 67 walk-thru Westfalia SO-42. I am the second owner. Bus is complete with dealer invoice, poptop, child cot, wood slat roof rack, and factory side tent. And concealed 1000 watt old school Rockford Fosgate sound system. Long term project, almost done. Sound system goes very well with beer.

Not in photo is 56 ragtop beetle, stock, completely apart. The metal work is mostly done.

Have pics of your bug online?

Thanks!

Well, I'm not a plumber, so I can't give you a reason why except to say that every time I've seen a gas installation it's been with black pipe. I'm sure they have their reasons.

Very nice 3 tier! Nice and compact. That is about the same height as mine.

Updated first post with feedback from almost a year of use.
Fixed broken photo links.
Thanks to the users who sent me a note about the photos and who drew my attention to my profile which identified me as a single female!

Gas breaks down copper over the long term. On a stand I wouldn't see a problem, but in a house I would say it's a problem. Even though I used soft copper to run my NG line to my exterior grill 10 years ago with no problems.

Nice setup. Can you give some details about how you got the electic thermometer into the MLT? I've got the same cooler and the same thermometer, so it looks like I may be a little fiddling away from a through-wall thermometer!

I just removed the little clip from the MLT and there were two holes there. Dug away some of the outer plastic and a bit of insulation. Drilled a small hole and then pressed the thermometer straight in. It is a tight fit.

Wiped interior around the probe with a bit of alcohol and smeared a tiny dab of silicone for extra insurance.

I do not hit the probe when stirring.
