Over the last week, I've finished priming and getting the initial coats of paint on the main shell. It still needs a final touch-up coat, but this stuff requires 1 week cure time before another coat can be applied.
Initial coat is promising.
The interior was sealed with rust transformer primer.
To help protect the interior, I coated the bottom 5.5" of the cabinet with rubber undercoating.
I've been making SketchUp models of the fridge and major components to aid in design and any fabrication.
