I just converted a Danby DAR044 and wanted to share. You don't need to cut out the shelving if you cut the door panel flat. The two cornies will fit, with one sitting a little more forward than the other.

I decided to make mine pretty, so I got a yard of vintage wallpaper and sandwiched it in between two sheets of plexi, and used that to replace the door panel I cut out. I caulked the plexi in place to be waterproof then finished it with some black electrical tape so the caulking is invisible.

I just have picnic taps for now, but I plan to install a walnut countertop and two separate axis single-tap towers. Today was my first day putting anything in a keg, so that was fun and exciting!

Edit: The two pieces of plexi were screwed together with four tiny harmonica screws from my husband's harmonica graveyard. The kegerator has therefore been hybridized with harmonica, so he wanted me to include that piece of information. :-)

I just went to Costco and bought the Danby dar044a2sldd. I have a 10lb CO2 tank so I want to run the CO2 line out of the fridge. What is the best way to do this? When I unscrewed the drip tray I saw that in addition to the drip tray tube there was a cap that was caulked/glued on. I peeled it off carefully and inside the hole there is insulation.

What is this hole? Is it safe to run the CO2 line through it?

Edit: I've attached two pictures to show what I'm talking about. The one picture is from inside the fridge and shows the drip hole. The other picture is from OUTSIDE where I unscrewed the drip pan. The white circle is where I'm hoping to run the CO2 through.
