  5. Hello, I want to paint my brand new refrig door in a dark cherry red to match the rest of my kitchen. Unfortunately no retailer in the entire city of 10,000,000 population carries this colour in appliance paint. And typical for the French overwhelming customer service they will not order it either. Can I use Rust olenum universal for my project. It will ruin my frig if it does not adhere. So I want to be sure first. My new frig is delivered in one week. Thank you for your advise.
    Kind regards,
