I got the paint treatment so the Wings will spend a few days in the drive connected to some temporary pipe heated with charcoal. No light it up, open the window and perhaps the stink will eventually go away will be tolerated by the ruling class here. Even the smell of the refractory lining setting is causing issues.
I hear ya there......"if momma aint happy, aint nobody happy".
I know your stove is painted (I was fussin' with it the day before you got there
) but if you ever get to a fork in the road where you either need to re-paint or strip it and polish it.......consider
polishing it. I've always had painted stoves and I have always liked the look but polish looks killer. I don't think it'd look good on a modern stove but on an old gal it looks great (smells good too).
I just picked up some 'Imperial Stove Polish' at a local hardware and it seems to be good stuff.
