    i'm definitely painting the firebox next time.
    not thrilled with the pam treatment.
    though i will likely still use the pam in the exhaust duct after cleaning the combustion blower blades.

    Hello

    Ok guys, here are the final pics!

    I painted the entire firebox and top heat exchanger baffles VHT Flame Proof 2,000 Deg F flat black.
    Then painted the back of the fire brick flat black.

    Then 1200 Deg F Stove Bright copper on the firebrick with the Surf Sand on the mortar!

    You are so right Dexter, it sure needed it!

    We had some copper in the tiles under it and in back of it. So Imacman was a great help in showing us what he did. Nice to see how it looks before you do it! Thanks again Pete!

    Also have a friend that is going to drop his stove off at my house to refurb! Good to have a little experience first!

    If I get time, I still want to replace the brass auger bushing. I want to take it out measure it and buy a generic plastic and brass cheap. Then see which works better!
