I have some rust on the metal shelves in the '76 Trillium
1300 I am remodelling. We scrubbed them good with scouring pads, and the rust came off, but did leave some darker blemishes. No doubt this will all begin to rust again as soon as some condensation sets on it.
The metal around the outside front had some rust too, but I sanded it off, as well as the scuffed the rest of the paint
, then coated it with an Appliance Epoxy. It now looks fantastic.
I would have to imagine others have had this same dilemma in their older trailers. What have you all done to correct this situation. A few ideas I have are;
1. Rough the surfaces with sandpaper, and use the appliance epoxy on them. Tough stuff, but would it stand up to the sliding of the contents for a good time.
2. Powder coat. Maybe take them to a powder coater and ask them to do them in whatever colour they are doing some time.
2. Re-chrome. Take them to a place in town that does chrome plating. They do mention redoing existing pieces of all kinds. I could maybe get my hinges done, as they have some pitting on them too.
4. Rubber coating. Anything that might work?
Looking for ideas on these, or other, options from those who may have redone their shelves, or those in the know about what to do.
