Good job
the insulation you put in your pipe through your roof, what did you use. My wood burner I used 1000 degree insulation put it around the 6" then wrapped the insulation then put the 8" pipe over it. I can put my hand it, it is warm and I did not burn my hand, warm to the touch.
If you are in a high wind area try building a cap using 3 "T" put together. the first connects to you pipe then connect the other "T" to the first "T". This stops the down draft and the suction of the wind, so the fire burn naturally, no flare ups. Easier to start a fire in your wood burner. You can put the ash screen on, but they will really do anything but keep the birds out in the summer time.

good luck and have fun working in your garage this winter

There isn't any insulation, its just airspace.

You might want to think again about that. Not having any insulation between the pipes, a lot heat is being transferred to any thing that it touching it that can start on fire. Better safe than sorry.
