Will have to cut hole 1 1/2 inch deeper to fit new stove in and line is on right side instead of left also connection is 6 inches forward hope the change to right side will make up for the forward position or will need new copper for the stove connection also lucky had not cut for stove in new counter top yet old unit was 22 inches wide and new unit is 21 3/8 inches wide.

counter and table top

progress between trips and work the actual cut out change for new stove was 1 inch deeper and 1/8 inch wider stove top is acually smaller but has less reveal.

Doing repairs as we reface cupboards. Wanted a stove from same vintage of boler trailer for the replacement. Ours worked great but the folding lid was missing, the chrome element and all other parts had been pained poorly in black the replacement is all original and very good shape.

Good luck on the roof leak--we are getting hammered here on the West Coast and I'm sure new leaks will be showing up for me as well.

Love seeing photos of your updates/remodels--looking really nice and bright!
