Hey Guys, 

So i just got started with my RF and i made cuts to my propane tanks and i believe they are off. I had 2 cylinders to it was kind of difficult to get the proper sq in. According to feldon calculations show 12.67 sq in. So what i did was just take length x width to get the sqin (which ended up being 2" h x 7"w) but i just went straight down vs making it curved like half moon shaped, I think i might of screwed up but hey its my first build so ill just make due. Is it an issue that its a tad bit wider? 

Another question of mine is what about the opposite side of the firebox how big is that gap suppose to be? should it also be 2 x 7? Im just hoping i didnt screw up this whole build because of my calculations!!. Sorry i dont have any pics right now ill try to get some later.
