Ok, here are those pictures I said I would post days ago. I have all of the JB weld taken off of the sides, but there is some on the bottom from where it ran down the side that I have to get off.

Here is where I put the JB weld on, you can see where it ran down onto the bottom.

Here is the top edge where the two side panels meet. You can see there is a lip on the tops. This lip locks into the top piece, there is also the same thing on the bottom.

I have not put it back together yet; I decided I would put a coat of paint on it. I finally got some paint a few days ago. Last night I decided to try it out and it is very easy to work with! Painting with a brush is something I hate to do, but this paint went on very nicely!

 

Here is what I painted.

E5142E68-9509-4032-993A-17A2FC4DA88F-286

 

I did not want to paint on the floor, for two reasons: I did not want to sit on the floor hunched over, and I did not want my dog near it. So, I decided to just  put the cardboard on the pool table, and do it there! Of course, after about 3 months of not playing... last night was the night my brother came down expecting to play. :poke:

Nice job Ryan!  Looks better than my 224 when it was brand new!

Ok, I have everything except one side, and the door painted; they can wait until tomorrow.

 

For the broken hinge on the door, I think I will just drill a hole in the door where the hinge was. In the hole I will put a steel rod and bend an "L" into it that will go into the other part of the hinge.

Looks great Ryan! You'll be heating the garage before long now! Maybe your Bro will help get some wood when it's time to try it out :D

That looks good Ryan.  Really.  Can't wait to see it all back together looking sharp.

I got the door hinge fixed! I just drilled a hole, and stuck a rod into it. I then bent it over and after some more fine adjustments it works great!

It's done! I got the door and side painted! I was able to then get it put together with Dave's help; I did not want to scratch it. :smilewink:

 

It did not come out as good as I had hoped, I missed quite a few spots; however, you can't notice unless you are looking for them so I just left it.

I decided to put it next to the house stove, for a picture. The large stove was spray painted with high-temp paint when we put it in; I think that this is the fourth year using it? I hope the paint on the little stove last longer then that one!

Here is the paint I used. I was not sure how many cans I would need, so I bought two. I figured I could just return the second if I did not need it; I ended up using about 1/3 of the second can. This paint went on very easy, covered great, and you only apply one coat; I highly recommend it. :thumbs:

Nice save on the hinge! 

 

When my 224 started to look a bit "used" I did it up with "stove blacking".  That "good ol' days" stuff is nothing more than carbon and bees wax.  I was trying to stay "traditional" back then as I was a  "Mother Earth News" type in those days.:D  Personally, the Hi-T rattle can paint I used on my current Avalon stove has lasted better and looked better longer than any stove blacking job.
