I would like to dress mine up also. You could always add the trim piece thats on the hearth model on the bottom but would have to modify it. I like the brass trim piece thats on the door of Channing III. I was thinking of something to go on the ash door like a nice piece of stained hardwood but heat and mounting would be an issue. I don't think there is to many options out there by looking at other manufactures stoves. Maybe someone has here but haven't seen any pics.

Stove companies don't use brass around heat too often. If you look at most stoves now days they use gold plating. You are constantly polishing brass to keep its shine. Heat will turn brass dull over nite. Gold never tarnishes. I checked into gold plating for our doors, add $275.00 to the price of your stove. With the way cast iron and steel have gone up, not counting the motors it's next to impossible to keep the price of the stoves within reason.

How about stainless for the fancy parts Jerry? It's not gold but silver IMO actually looks better especially on black.

Nothing against Reading stoves, but their chrome door and the cast iron stove comes from China. I try to buy everything in the states, but prices are through the ceiling. I can get chrome handles and other parts for the stove, but there again they blue from heat.
