For the side firebox door I wouldn't stress over that. The small amount of air you get through those gaps is unlikely to cause you major problems, plus if you are stick burning you should about always err on the side of more airflow and rather than choking off your fire. For the top lid you can use the nomen gasket I mentioned in your other thread. Flames have licked my gasket in the firebox and kind of crisped it in a few places but it still seems to work.

Ray, morning..... Well, it looks like you have fixed the leaks on the top loading door and the air inlet butterfly damper..... How does it work....

Are you still having any trouble operating it...

Good morning Dave just had the time to fire it up last night and it is better I think it still needs a gasket. I got a wood burning stove gasket and am going to put it on today will let you know how it works out. I really like the weight the strap added to the lid.
