Default Flex Seal (As Seen on TV Stuff) inside a Keezer

I'm having some slight rust problems around the inside bottom edges of my keezer. I'm wanting to hit it with some CLR then seal it in some way. I thought about caulk but am afraid that water can get under it and still cause issues. So anyone ever have any experience with that Flex Seal Spray, or think its a bad idea?

I used that stuff on some elbows for my gutters. I put 4 coats on (2 were recommended). They still leak. I would stay away from the flex seal spray.

In the freezer I bought for a keezer build, I sealed all the seams with clear RTV..........Smelled like hell for a few days, but there is a good bead of silicone around all the joints!

I used the Rustoleum brand on a leaky gutter and it started leaking again pretty quickly. Maybe I needed to prep the area better but it seemed like water just found it's way under the seal and lifted it up.

I would have expected hell to smell more like sulfur and burning flesh than vinegar, but I've never been there, so I don't know.

What about using a brush on automotive bed liner or can of underspray? Just thinking out loud here.
