Looks better than I had imagined it. How old was the glass in that pic?

Glass was about 6 weeks old, so was the paint job.

Be careful what you spray the stove with inside. Some of that stuff is highly flammable, and setting in a stove all summer could cause a problem on lite up. I called that LPS-3, flammable.

I have also heard to keep a light bulb burning during the summer . I am not sure how many watts you would need . Maybe 75 or 100 w should do . Dave

I wasn't sure of the wattage . Reminds me of a funny story .A friend of mine was talking about the plastic melting around a light fixture . I asked her what size bulbs she was using . She said she only buys 100w bulbs because she gets more watts for the same amount of money :D . I almost wet myself laughing so hard . Dave

Coal stoves are not the only ones subject to the rusting. I have a Quadrafire Castile Pellet stove and the cast iron plates on the back, as well as the steel plates on the side rust terribly during the summer. This happened months after I bought the stove and the manufacturer said it was normal, and I would have to do an annual sanding and painting on the inside to keep the good appearance before the next burning season. Although disappointed (it is in a very visible spot) I now do this annually and it does maintain the appearance through the burning season. At least the spot you're talking about doesn't seem to be as sightly as mine.

Take a look under the hood of any car that still uses cast iron exhaust manifolds or regular steel pipes RUST it's the unavoidable nature of the beast

Hot then cold makes condensation which makes oxidation.
