My plan tonigt is to ruin the brand new 19.7 cf freezer and sand it enough for the new paint to stick .
You sold that one for $2500?

I saw that work of art on craiglist (I'm in Anchorage)! Good luck on the new build, looking forward to the final product.

I already have one taking up room I don't have to spare in the garage That one will get converted to a ferm chamber and I'll be building a new keezer this winter. I don't know anyone looking to buy one, you could try asking on Great Northern Brew Club's facebook page.

Hell, if I knew there were such a strong market for kegerators in AK I'd start building my own to sell!

No you don't want to do that. I got in locked down. Don't need any others encroaching on my potential clientele!

On another note, anyone have problems with primer sticking to the freezer? I used an automotive primer and it didn't want to stick all that well. Kinda did the whole crack and run thing. I have seen spray paint do this before when painting interior automotive parts but I didn't think it would be an issue on the freezer, since I sanded the whole thing. Hopefully the appliance enamel will go on better.

Don't they make appliance paint specifically for these applications or am I wrong?

They do. That's what I am using for the top coat, but I tried to lay down some automotive primer and the freezer didn't bond with it. I'm sure the appliance paint for the top coat will stick better.

What did you clean with after sanding?

Might just be the enamel on their is not compatible with auto paints.
