See pics. Paint sounds like a solution. Anyone have a recommendation?

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

Looks like mine! which sucks because I did new counter top and, well you can see the mahogany lid frame.

I have a spray can of rustoleum paint for plastic, have not tried it yet, can't seem to find it in a can for brush on. Every time I've ever sprayed something in a box the over spray got out of control.





The pink foam is in the bottom loose and adds to insulation value. It can be removed should I want to use ice instead.

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

Sounds like a perfectly good reason to get a new boat with a really nice ice box, or even a refrigerator.

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

I would think a small can of one part marine paint would do fine. Maybe if you need to touch up your cove stripe you could do that with the same can of paint.

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

No amount of scrubbing and strong cleaners changed the look of the old poly plastic either.

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

I hear tell that some folks have 'glassed layers of that pink or blue foam to the inside of their old icebox and painted it white.

Not sure what they painted it with though.

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

I used the pink that is glassed over to build the plywood lid. solid wood lids just kept warping and did not have the insulation I wanted.

I am thinking paint for plastic and possibly add foam sheets to build up bottom. Don't really need more R value but the other complaint is it is too deep. My elevation challenged wife can't reach stuff in bottom 4 inches anyway. Will report back

Re: Wife says icebox is disgusting

I'd be tempted to sand it all down to clean glass and prime it, then paint with a mildew resistant bathroom paint and give that a try for a season.

Remember if you're going to glass in ordinary styrofoam insulation as shown you cannot use polyester resin.. it will dissolve the foam. You must use an epoxy. Before I made any such permanent modifications to the ice box I'd drop a piece in there (cut to fit well but leaving a clear drainage area/channel if you're using loose or un-contained ice) and try that out first. You may find you lose too much volume.
