Hey folks, acquired an old Admiral fridge the other day and started breaking it down. It is a pretty good set up with some minor rust in the bottom. I browsed through the forum the other day and picked up a few ideas, but didn't see these questions. I hope they aren't too bad of a repeat.
There is a fair amount of tar in the back of the main box. Should I remove all of it or just the majority? What is the best way to get rid of it? It's not scraping very easily.
Another question is drilling through the enamel coating. What's the best way to do that? I'll be drilling for another rack, firebox entry and chimney/smoke exit.
Planning on using Roxul and a little bit of white cedar for the insulation. (The insulation that was in it looked like ground up coconut husk and there was a lot of it)
Any recommendations are appreciated. I'll have some pics this evening. I was in a hurry to break it down the other day and didn't get any.
