First freezer build

Post by dawgssmoker » December 30th, 2013, 3:37 pm

I have an old freezer with a metal porcelain inside, fiberglass insulation, plastic on the inside of the door. I have removed the plastic from the around the inside of the door, and will remove the plastic from the door and remove the plastic strip that seals the door. My question is, what type of metal can I use to replace the plastic, and what type should NOT be used? HELP
Thanks,
dawgssmoker

If it was me… I would just use 14 gauge metal

If you can't fix it by sheer force or cursing......then it can't be fixed.....
