Just got the rest of my parts from Larry today. List of parts included:

Ash Pan
7" Stove Top Lid
Shaker Rod
Fire View Door

All I have to say is that I am impressed at the level of craftsmanship in these parts. I can not get this stove up and running. Yes, I will have new pictures. Hopefully I can make some progress with the stove this weekend.

Although, I would like to know how many coats of polish he has on the door. I've got about 6 coats on one of the legs and its not even close.

Are you using stove black polish? Did you let the polish dry before buffing? Maybe give Larry a call and ask how he does it.

Yes. I am using stove polish and yes, I've been letting it dry before buffing it out. Its getting darker. I may however, need a few more tubes if I want to get all of the cast parts to look like the new door.

Apparently, I'm doin' it wrong. Larry said it is one coat of polish and buff it out with a stiff bristle brush then wiped with a soft rag. I think that was mentioned on here before.

I've never used stove polish so, I'm an idiot.

I've always used stove polish rather than paint. It is very easy to spruce up over the heating season, where as paint may fade or flake off. The best results are achieved with large portions of applied elbow grease. ;)

The one leg I did is very black and very shiney. So, what I'm gonna do is all 4 legs and top with around 6 coats of polish to make them shiney then the ash door I will do with the one coat to have it be more like the fire view door.

I can't see re-stripping the leg to re-apply one coat. So, I'm just gonna leave it.

What do you guys use to clean the old gasket cement from the top of the stove?

When I stripped the ash door I used a 4 1/2" angle grinder with an aggressive wire wheel. But that was a bit easier to get to. I've tried to use the same angle grinder with the same wire wheel to do the top but it won't fit inside the groove like it did for the door.

I just used a hand held wire brush, but my Chubby didn't have a lot of glue build up so it was pretty easy to do.

Yeah, there is a lot of buildup on mine. I tried a wire brush. I'm not sure what else I can or should use.

Maybe you could use a stiff putty knife for the bulk of it and finish off with the wire brush, can't think off any thing else at the monent. Or maybe a small diameter wire wheel.

I was using a screwdriver but since the groove that the gasket sits in is round it doesn't do a great job. I'm thinking maybe a rounded chisel and a wire brush.

Old screwdriver and grind the end to fit...
Some kerosene to soften it a bit...
Chip out the bigger pieces...
Scrape with the modified screwdriver...
Then wire brush for the final cleaning...
