Oh yeah! I forgot to mention that I was going to use rustoleum on it after it was all cleaned up also, but I didn't think of stripping the existing paint. That's a great idea.
As far as taking it apart and putting it back together...being able to do that hinges on whether or not the freezer can physically come apart and be put back together. I live in a house with 5 other engineering students who can surely figure it out, if it is feasible!
Looks like I have a whole lot of work ahead of me! It's a labor of love for great beer though!
