Yeah, it really does.

The freezer is back to the way that it was:


Tomorrow, the rust doctor goes to work. We are back on track and getting ready to kick some ass.

Also, I don't know if it's visible, but in the left hand corner of the room are the 2 redsox barstools.

On to some new pictures!

The Rust doctor stuff is crazy. Smells a bit when you are applying it, but the immediate change in the rusted metal is unreal.

This picture you can see that the bottom was treated with Rust Dr and the top has not been. We had only applied the Rust Dr. about 5 minutes before taking this picture. Imagine what more time will do.


Color before putting on the Dr.


After:


Rust Spots getting neutralized. I honestly didn't think the inside was this bad. Clearly the Dr knows more than I do


Again, compare the color from the picture that I posted yesterday:



Pretty crazy huh? Well, I'm off to bed. This stuff has to cure for up to 24 hours to see good results and tomorrow we plan on using it on the lid. More pics to follow tomorrow.

You then going to be painting the whole thing white over that with some KILZ then the plaid? The Rust Dr Stuff pretty awesome. I'll keep in it mind in the future.

+1 on Oil-(or shellac) based KILZ first. Very stinky, use fans. Drys in 30 minutes, seals well, toothy dull finish (as any good primer should be), seals in any stains, bleed-through, etc.
the latex Kilz just ain't all that. Don't recommend it.

Well, the project will pick up again next week. For the last two days we haven't had water at the house - it's all over the basement instead!

Our line out for the washing machine/kitchen sink overflowed... it was power washed out but blew a crack in the water main in the process.(don't ask me how he did it). $2,000 later I won't be paying rent for a month and a half.

More pics on Monday/Tuesday.

D'oh! Talk about a cliff-hanger! "Tune in next week to see if our hero clears the canyon and rescues the fair maiden on the other side..."
