VERY NICE! Glad to see you used dope instead of tape. Was the leg for what looks like a grill part of the original setup?

More better. That pipe dope must transfer by osmosis like heat sink compound and anti seize.

The grill leg was the original install but it was copper. That's why I originally did the generator in copper just adding it onto the existing. I did reuse the grill stop valve with the steel piping. It looks old but seems to work well.

That's a geat analogy with the anti-sieze. Like the pipe dope it seems to have legs and once it is in your carpet forget about it. This dope was really messy partly because it is white (Hercules Real Tuff teflon). I'd wipe a joint with a paper towel and then couldn't see where on the towel the dope was. Pretty soon it was everywhere.
