I also bought a fridgidaire freezer for a conversion. I noticed the corners where the collar sits are raised. Did you modify the corners or the collar i any way to compensate for this, or was the adhesive enought to seal and fill the gap created by the raised corners? Thanks, and good job on the build!

Default Inside Space

Wonderful project! I can wait to get started and make one just like yours! Just a quick question--can you fit 4 Corny kegs inside your 7.2 cu ft freezer? I was thinking about the bigger one to more comfortably get 4 inside.

Thanks for the inspiration!

On mine the gap was very small, maybe a 1/16th of an inch, I just used silicone to attach the collar and seal the gap. No issues at all. I also sealed both layers of foam that I insulated with to the collar and the freezer using silicone becuase overkill is fun. ;-)

Four fits easily with one on the hump. Some have even fit five in it.

I did admittedly skip to the end of this thread... I hope to read it thoroughly later when I have more time. BUT... I can't find this freezer anywhere. All of the similar units I've found have big nasty looking temp controllers on the front panel. All of the ones I've found were white as well.

Where can I find this freezer?

Love what you did here. I'm going to do this when I get my kegerator together!
