Been slow going. Have had everything for this and a Double pan gravity feed cut out for over a year now. Life gets in the way sometimes but we are rolling now. Hope to have it all on a trailer by end of summer.

I like how you used the feet for a natural door stop. Nice touch!

Thanks. Sorry for the double pics. The feet for the stop were not planned. I had the door drawn out and while cutting the front set of feet off that the rear set might be close enough. Will see hoe it goes when I get it mounted to the trailer

At this point, I filled mine with water to check for leaks. I’ve never used the baffle plate as a water pan as I do t feel it’s beneficial but at least I can. Took me 2 tries to weld up a few stubborn/crappy welds.

I don’t know how I would see the leak. Got 4” of open space at the end. Guess I could look through the firebox.
