Chest Freezer Rusting and chipping repair help?
 
Alright i have a old Chest freezer that im turning into my home brewing fermentor. It has some small rusting and places where the paint has chipped away. I know that i can go buy appliance paint and paint over the spots. But wanted to know if anyone recomends a adhesive or something to put down as a base coat to help this from not happening again. Any prouduct that anyone has used to repair rust spots on a freezer before applying paint would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance

you could try sanding out the rust then applying the paint. Not too complicated.

I have had this problem in the UK. Light sanding of the rust followed by a light coat of Phosphoric Acid will stablilise the rust and convert it into a protective layer. Then you can paint over it. We can buy this stuff in stores that specialise in car parts/paints etc. There is a brand name "Kurust" over here.

I've known people to use POR15 with great results.
Someone else here a year or so ago used a solution that eats away a bit of rust and seals it up turning the rust into black spots.

Anything that would form an airtight seal over the rusting areas will prevent further rust.
Then just primer and paint over it.

I think this might be your best bet:
RUSTY METAL PRIMER SPRAY
Lowe's, HD, ACE Hardware, et.al.

This works very good, you just need to remove loose rust and sand the paint to a feather edge first. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_SPM213924717P?sid=IDx20101019x00001a &ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=SPM213924717 Attachment 23252
