Default Worried about drilling into the side of a Frigidaire

So I'm looking at taking the plunge into kegging. I have a Sanyo 4912 that I was considering using, but I have recently been using that for lagering and don't really want to lose that capability. Instead I would like to put 2 taps on the side of my other basement fridge, a Frigidaire FRT18IL6DML.

After doing some web research, I found some suggestions that most fridges have coils in the sides, and some that almost none do. Is there an easy way to tell? Will the alcohol/corn starch slurry trick tell me if I can safely drill? Obviously the door would be a safer option, but for asthetic and convenience reasons I'd rather put them on the side.

Thanks in advance!

Wayne

It looks like you coil is in the bottom of the fridge. I think you are good to go.
