I'm budgeting ~$3-400 for the rebuild/paint (inside and out), gaskets, replacement parts, hardware, new pipes, baro and manometer. The (stove cost $475). I can probably get at least $4-500 for my old Vigilant. So for a little sweat equity I think this will be a cheap sex change operation (Manly-Man to Girlie-Man).
I want an extremely quiet stove so I'll make whatever modifications required to dampen the 2 blowers short of placing them outside of the room. My biggest concern is with the convection blower on these units... It's part of the hopper door. What were they thinking???!!!
