Fridge

Forgot to mention my fridge on here! I’ve got a 3-way (Gas, 12V, 230V) Dometic RM212 fridge that I managed to pick up second hand from ebay for about £50 delivered! It needed a really good clean including the gas jet nozzle and I replaced the mains power lead… but it works really well. I didn’t realise how quickly the efficiency of these fridges drops when they are at an angle so you need to park on level ground or use chocks to level you off.

I’ve also ripped the front panel off and added a logo…. this is only attempt 1 but its an improvement. It will be really easy to replace or cover the front door and control panel so it looks a little less 1980s!

Now for a motto to go around the logo!

The motto I like and am stealing is from The Addams Family and is “Sic Gorgiamus Allos Subjectatos Nunc” or “We Gladly Feast on Those Who Would Subdue Us.”

The problem is that’s not what it says… its a bad translation! A closer translation into Latin would be as below (according to http://thecampvs.com/2009/03/28/bad-movie-latin-2/):

Laeti vescimur nos subacturis

…and google translate gives me the following:

Non in die festo Parvam piamque dum lubenter eorum non proderunt animos iramque Nobis

Which to me seems to be too long for that translation! So I think I’m going to go for the campvs translation.

Laeti Vescimur Nos Subacturis

Now to find a font… as this isn’t a commercial project and just for me there are thousands of free fonts to choose from, I usually start at http://www.1001freefonts.com.

I think this is my one! http://www.1001freefonts.com/prince_valiant.font

I’m becoming a ninja with a scalpel! Although this was a slightly ridiculous way of doing it. Next time I use a projector and trace that way!

OK… so I may not have fitted the fridge correctly! I added the Flue and cut the hole for that and the gas drop out underneath but I should really have vented to the outside! Time to go back… pull it out and do it again!!
