Not really, I am waiting on the parts to go ahead and automate both burners and finish the control panel. I am way over budget, so to the point now where I have to buy things as the money rolls around. At the point, the only things I need are a plate chiller and about $450 worth in stainless fittings for the kettles. I did a test fire though, here she is

So I finally made some progress on this after a several month hiatus. Got everything painted, but before I did so I wired up all of the ignition components to check things out and help figure out where I wanted things, here is a shot of the hot surface ignitor warming up just before ignition. Also some of the gas valves and plumbing. One valve is a robert shaw, the other is a white rodgers and both are being operated by honeywell s8910u hot surface ignition modules, should have some pics up of the panel in a day or two, I'm painting it now but ran out of paint. I also decided to go ahead and get nice kettles. So I am saving for them now. This has taken longer than I thought
