Front door opening is just a hair over 6" tall. A six inch fire pot would be the ticket for ease of use/assembly
Now here is the big question.
Someplace I remember reading that you can't use stove polish on blasted metal. Is that true?
In other words, can I send this thing out for media blasting and expect to have a 100% perfect finish after applying stove polish? I can't imagine sanding the exterior in preparation for finishing.
I been cleaning and dry fitting all of the pieces and am concerned about how the overall finish will turn out due to color variances in the parts. Even has some small areas of rust that if I treat with acid may or may not finish with the surrounding metal. I want this thing to finish perfect, not almost perfect.
I don't have any stove black to even do a trial run. Does it cover small scratches in the CI?
Any input is appreciated.
