Plastic Paint for Inside Refrigerator?

I'm in the process of painting the inside walls and door of my 75 fridge. Could not stand the yellowish-orange any longer. Already have the door finished and it looks GREAT! Now for the inside walls....

Anyone else tried their luck with a similar project? Wondering what kind of results you've had, and how long the finish would last.

JB, the plastic inside the fridge would do well with Krylon Fusion paint. It adheres really well to plastic without much more modification that cleaning the gunk off the plastic. I painted a plastic Power Wheels Jeep a year or so ago, and it has been sitting out in the heat and sun since. The only spots the paint isn't doing well are the parts I didn't clean well enough.

I suppose it will depend on what kind of paint you are working with and how well you prepared the surface.

I used the Por15 product WhiteCoat to do the bathroom walls and ceiling in my ARGOSY 24 and it's fantastic, as hard as a rock. Looks like porcelaine.

Terry,
Great advice, again, Terry! Thanks. I'll be sure to get the walls as clean as possible with a little Acetone. The plastic paint I used for the door was called Rust-oleum Specialty Paint for Plastic. Not sure how that compares to Krylon, but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough, eh?

Sergei,
Nice job, nice pics! Looks like your Argosy project is quite well. Thanks for the input. I'll keep Por15 in mind when I get to updating my bathroom.
