Well been a lil over whelmed by this thing lately but finally got the last of the foam in(well i need a lil bit to trim the doorway for a good seal) i ended up with 3 layers of the r3 foam all the way around inside, 3 in between the "studs", 5 where the coil of the fridge will be mounted and in all this i ate up a lot more space on my inner dimensions then i had expected so i was able to finagle 2 brew buckets in but fully loaded and with more door trim and i dont think that will happen. i also realized that my total inner height of 26.5" may be a bit tight for a corny keg... i think it will fit but it would be close(5 gal keg height = 25" with disconnect 26). so the moral of the story is if you are doing this same project add a few inches up and out or take it a lil easy on the foam board(i prob could have gotten away with 2 layers on the inside). here are some pics as usual.











anyone know the dimensions on 5 gal carboys vs the brew buckets?

If need be you could always carve the foam in areas you need to if you think it might be thick enough.

ok guys i think i have decided that this will be a kegerator only as i have been donated a nice fridge for an undercounter ferm. that being said i have really made some BIG progress in the past few days.
Here is a run down:
-killed the mini fridge
-transplanted the guts
-worked out the wiring
-acquired tap tower(s)*FREE!?!?*

so basically i am one piece of plywood short of having it looking done. i need to seal up around the freon line and finish wiring.







hopefully this will all come together nicely.
