My travel trailer fridge inside door shell was all cracked. I took some fiberglass mesh and fiberglassed it. Is there any kind of paint i can use to paint it? I'm pretty sure i can't use regular paint cause of the coldness in the fridge when it's running. It's not really that big of a deal if i can't paint it. I just figured it would be a nice touch to cover up my repair job.
If you can sue McDonalds for getting you fat then why can't you sue the alcohol companies for all the ugly people you ended up sleeping with?

Once the paint is dry, I don't think fridge would be cold enough to effect it.  I would look at the paint, they sell for painting plastic lawn furniture, I can't remember if it's rustolum or krylon brand.  A auto type paint could also work.  IMO having paint stay on the plastic part, would be more of an issue than the cold.  I would pop door off and paint it outside.  I would also let it dry real well, to get rid of paint smell, before I would want it in fridge.

Thanx guys. Yeah Robert. Once i fiberglassed it i had to leave the door open for quite a few days to get that eye burning smell out of it too.

some steel wool polishing will let the paint 'bite'.
