My understanding (please correct me if I am wrong anybody) but the compressors on most but the largest mini-fridges are about the same. The one I used was a 2 or 2.5 IIRC, but it has been a few years since I have done this project.
As far as resurrection, I ended up never staining or painting since it has found a home in the garage, but has worked quite well for me over the years. The only problem I have had was recently I have been tripping the GFCI it is plugged into. Since I have been on a all too long hiatus from brewing, this will be looked into once by brewery project gets back on line.
