Default anyone ever use the "guts" of a mini fridge to make a larger kegerator?

Just wondering and would like to see some pictures, while i have some ideas... i would like some inspiration.
I Would love to go with a Keezer, but my room will not allow something that wide, so it needs to be somewhat custom.

I've seen people use the guts of a regular fridge to make a kegerator, and i've seen a few people attach a wooden box to a mini fridge. I think the problem you would have is that the compressor is not built to handlethat space so it may not last long
