    I'm replacing an Encore with a sand Defiant Encore -- chimney and black stove pipe are in place. Options for connecting Defiant Encore to 6" stove pipe:

    A) 8" oval flue collar (sand) to 8" oval to 8" round adapter (sand) to 8" round to 6" round reducer (black) to black stove pipe to chimney

    B) 6" round flue collar (imperfect color match to sand -- I'd need to buy this) to 6" stove pipe and up

    C) 8" oval flue collar (sand) to 8" oval to 8" round adapter (black) to 8" round to 6" round reducer (black) to black stove pipe to chimney

    D) 8" oval flue collar (sand) to 8" oval to 6" round adapter (too expensive?) and up

    What would you do? How noticeable would the color difference be in the new flue collar? Reducing and changing color would look bad...or would it?

    Thoughts?
    Thanks.
