Terry--Glad it works good for you. Sometimes when I need a super fast recovery, I slide the weight on my baro to keep it closed for a while and it revs up even faster.
I posted on another thread that i got one of the first Vig's with the coal kit, and it had a narrow strip of cast iron bolted to the undrside of the front grate. this strip clamped a fiberglass gasket that protruded towards the door, and touched the door, crushing it some and effectivly doing the same thing as the "door mod". After 5 years or so, the gasket (which was clad in a stainless steel mesh) got destroyed from slicing I guess. The gasket wasn't available by then as the later stoves didn't have them, so I came up with the idea of gluing something on the doors. I had two stove dealers swear they never had such a gasket on the front grate, but the bolt on strip is still under my grate! My brother has the same stove bought at the same time, and his has it on it also.
