I'm picking up what is called "Rust Doctor" to re-prime the fridge. Here's some information on it here...
Rust Removal Products Rust Repair Rust Converter Rust Stain Removal Stop Rust

In the meantime, I will be starting to get the inside portions of the freezer situated.
Here's the pictures... I'm pretty damn pissed.



I will be stripping down all the paint and re-priming once the priming doctor shows up.

Looking awesome!

Why put the collar on the lid and not the chest?

So when I open it up all of the taps and lines go with it. Once I run all of the lines inside it will make perfect sense

Well, it looks like the rust Dr. did what it said.... it reacts with the rust spots and turns them black. I suppose you could just paint over it now, yes?

If you're going to bother with stripping all the paint off again, I would use an oil-based primer that is made specifically for metal. Glidden latex primer is probably not going to cut it.

Awesome project.

Suggestion - if you haven't already, try a 'real' paint store - there are metal conditioners and other products to use on the rust before the primer...

Eww I wouldn't recommend that at all. I got Jelly in my naval once during a...um...well it just happened once. It feels gross! Sure you're not necessarily thinking of that at the time it happens, but waking up the next day in the middle of a park half naked with sun baked jelly in your naval is no fun! Not even going to get in to the mess with getting jelly out of a Donkey's Mane! Good thing bachelor parties only happen once right!

I say just concentrate on the build for now.
