I didn't use the original beltline trim, mostly because it looks like hammered dookie. This is Chinese peel and stick automotive trim, which I expect to remain attached for several more minutes; I'll probably end up attaching it permanently with polished stainless screws.
It's extremely imporant to duplicate the condenser air anti-recycle baffles, for which I used aluminum sheet, cut to size and epoxied/riveted in.
The two halves are riveted and epoxied together. It's not all that big a deal, because the top half does hold the bottom half down.
I didn't use the original screens for two reasons: First, they looked even worse than the belt trim, and second, those screens are pretty restrictive to airflow. The grilles are epoxied into the shell.
I do win the prize for "Most Creative Use of a Refrigerator Shelf!"
The paint is boat topside paint. I was looking for something with at least a little gloss, that would go over fiberglass, and that would hold up outside in Arizona. The stuff is a real biscuit to work with; an HVLP spray gun ended up working the best.
The upside is that it will obviously last a heck of a lot long then the original; the downside is that it's several pounds heavier.
