Default convert a side by side Refrigerator to kegerator

Any one done this?

Wanting turn the freezer side into the kegerator and the fridge side to just hold beer.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome and wanted!

I've never done it, but I too have a side by side in my garage. Right now I keep the beer in the freezer side. The problem I see is how to control the temps in each side individually. I think both the fridge and freezer use a single compressor. I'm acutally just getting ready to go out and drill an exploratory hole in the fridge.
