    this guy was a real wreck, all the steel parts were totally destroyed by rust - even the wire hoop at the bottom of the shade-- had to put on a new bead around the bottom of the shade and all the steel in the vent top had rusted out and expanded causing all the screws to pull through the bass and leaving holes that had to be dealt with in a number of different ways-- almost done- just need to square the top vent make a new bale and test fire-- then off to its owner for his collection !! - ~~ I have another one in line for a bottom transplant--- major surgery on that one huge irreparable rust hole---
