I've been a sporadic home brewer since the late 90's, but have never kegged. About 2 years ago my neighbors across the street upgraded their fridge and asked me if I wanted it for the garage. The price was right (free) so I said yes. I've been using it to lager for sometime now, but have never gotten around to actually using it to store/serve keg beer. I figure it's about time to change that. Ordered up some gas equipment, and I already had 2, 5 gallon kegs, but I'm still short some liquid equipment, tap handles, etc. In the mean time, I decide to spruce the old fridge up and make it worthy of the beer I'd like to serve out of it. In the hangar we have the US flag, the state, flag, and all the service flags, and I was inspired by the CO flag. I decided to paint the upper freezer door like the flag, and I want to do the lower door with "chalkboard" paint so I can label individual tap handles, draw pictures, what ever, but before I tackled the big door figured I better see how much of a project it might turn out to be, so I've started with the flag. These pictures represent my last 2 Saturdays, and last Sunday at work. The fridge has some kind of wrinkly textured surface that I wanted to fill and make as smooth as possible. It's not in the paint but in the actual skin of the fridge itself. First, the existing paint comes off. Cleaning: Hysol 9309. Like bondo, but "aiplaney" I think this shit is way to thick, way to hard to spread out, and way to hard to sand down to the level I wanted. When I do the big door I'll definitely use something runnier. Fortunately, epoxies and fillers abound in great quantities at work and something is always nearing a shelf life. Cure faster damn you! Sanded back down and filled in. Much smoother to the touch. Ready for paint. The recent merger introduced a new paint scheme, and we still have literal gallons of the old stuff sitting around, so white and dark blue are also incredibly easy to come by. This is white, I swear: Taping on Sunday morning. So blue..... This afternoons progress at home: The "C" sanded for primer Hoping to spray red and yellow tomorrow, but it's awfully humid and cold for garage spraying, I may wait until I can get back in the paint booth at work. Progress pics to come.
