Thanks! I'm pleased with the progress so far and the project itself has been pretty fun.
We thought about welding the firebox to the cooking chamber, but decided it wasn't worth the effort and didn't want to make it difficult to remove down the road if necessary for repair.
Good luck with your restoration. Hope it gains some traction pretty soon!
Given the attachment to the Bandera on this board, I had thought/hoped more Bandera owners would have chimed in.
