I meant the firebox itself. My firebox appears to be spot welded together. So did you drill out the spot welds to dissassemble the firebox?

Anything that wasn't bolted on slid off, like the f/box lid and door. The vent handle slides out and the vanes drop from the door. This thing dosen't appear to be used much-the cabinet isn't seasoned or gunky and all the bolts are rust free. I beadblasted some of the smaller parts and painted with 1200* black semi-gloss.
