I had rust peek through stuff before. A coat of Red Oxide Primer is the way to go.

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.
Actually, the rust doctor hasn't come in yet. I attempted to use vinal caulking in the corners, it didn't work (clearly... YUCK!)

The Rust doctor primer will be here soon. As soon as it's here, I will start the painting process again. It's pretty discouraging, but I'm still going to make sure that I keep pushing forward on it.

Side note, I don't know who updates the HBT twitter page, but I made it!!!

homebrewtalk (HomeBrewTalk) on Twitter

I just want to say THANKS!!!!!!! I really appreciate the recognition, and it's cool to have my work/effort promoted. To have it called the "MOAK" is humbling and makes me proud.

Would it be beneficial to insulate the collar?

Amazing project...what amazes me most is that you posted "I don't drink much beer" yet you'll have 12 kegs on tap???
Wow, that's a lot of beer to have on hand..

Okay I'm a little jealous but seriously ...12?

I would like to also have 1-2 as soda taps.

Taylornate; from what I've read there probably are benefits to insulating the collar, but I am going to see how it works out without insulating it first. If I notice that there is a significant problem with foaming then I will insulate it.

I don't think insulation on a collar would help with foaming. With your faucets in the cold area, insulation would just help the freezer to run more efficiently. A fan would help with stratification, moving the coldest air from the bottom and keeping your taps colder.

I was thinking more about the electric bill than I was about foaming.
