I'm looking for opinions on if I should cut the compressor hump or build a collar for my mini-fridge (essentially which will be easier given the story I'm about to write).
I'd like to expand the fridge to hold 2 pin lock kegs for storage/lagering purposes (I have a separate kegerator). I've already cut the shelving out of the inside and removed the stuff from the door. Yesterday I bent the freezer compartment back against the rear wall of the fridge for more room. I need ~3 1/4" of extra space to close the door with two kegs. Looking at the compressor, it only takes up a fraction of the space reserved for it, so I believe I could removed a few inches of the hump and invert that section with a combination of reflectix and spray foam.
The other option I contemplated was building a wedge collar for those extra few inches. I'm not sure I know exactly how to secure a collar to the unit, so if this is your preferred expansion method, I'm open to suggestions! As far as my native skill set is concerned, I'm FAR better at cutting things than I am at making anything that fits together square, so perhaps take that into consideration
