Default Easiest Kegerator Build - Danby DAR482BLS

After my dumb screw incident on my last kegerator attempt:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/ge-walmart-fridge-into-kegerator-308879/

I finally succeeded with the Danby "Millennium" DAR482BLS model.

I won't go into a heap of detail as I followed the directions here:

Bumping the thread. My recent cabinet kegerator is on hold due to issues, and this is a fridge I have. Did you do the paste to see if there were fridge lines on top? If so, were there?

Google Danby kegerator build and it should pop up. The Google+ link has all the pictures still.

No I didn't paste or anything... I just turned it on with the door open and it was easy to feel the lines... This is a great fridge to use as there is no freezer so it maintains 4-5 degrees with no added temp control at all... just adjust the fridge dial.

+1 I built my kegerator from the dar4882bls with no issues. Drilled a 1 1/4" hole and fit two 1/2" diameter copper tubes through it for chilling the tower.
