Spent pretty much the entire day on the firebox door. Had to fabricate the choke and grind the diamond ridges on the door smooth in order for the choke to slide and seal properly, that was very time consuming. I threw a small handle to push the choke open or closed with my fire stick. Hopefully I can mount the door and fit the seals tomorrow. Oh yeah, I also cut the coal grate to size.
Here are the updated pics.
