Custom door panels for new refrigerator!

When I purchased a new NorCold to replace the original (dead) Dometic in our '62 Tradewind, we did not pay $300 for the brushed stainless door panels. Instead, I had ImageWizards put a couple of my photographs on aluminum and we used those for door panels. Worked great! Check it out (image shot with doors open). These panels are durable, washable, beautiful. (The bright spot in the freezer panel is just from the camera flash when I took the picture for this post)

Very cool, what a great idea. Do you mind me asking how much it cost to have this done?

That is so stunning and original! What a great way to personalize and moderize your Airstream and exhibit your photography all at one time. Good choice of the diner motif with your checkered flooring and vintage Airstream too. I got gramma cupboards on mine.

Thanks everyone. I almost wanted to move the fridge into our house. The cost from Image Wizard to do the printing was less than retail for stainless panels, $250. Freight to CA from NC was 53
