Default fridge door

I just got my fridge out of storage and I'm starting to work on setting it up as a kegerator and I need to remove the old plastic from the inside of the door and I'm just wondering what everyone else has used to replace this. I'm thinking that lowes will carry some kind of hard plastic sheeting like a shower wall replacement or some thing. does anyone have a link to a kegerator build using an old freezer on top fridge?

Silicone sealed a 14"x14" piece of 1/8" plexy around my 4 shanks and left the rest of the door exposed. Haven't had any issues.

If you haven't thought about it, heard it's a good idea to leave a strip of the original plastic intact under the door's rubber edge seal. Ensures proper suction when closed.

I just cut the shelves off the door, and used a scrap piece of plexiglass to hold it together. I laid the door on a flat surface to make sure it lined up right.

This is a CL junker fridge, but it works fine so far.

I just lined it with another piece of styrofoam.

I went to my local HVAC supply store and got a piece of galvanized sheet metal. They had a piece of scrap about the size I needed and gave it to me for nothing.

I used 1/8" ABS panel, looks original.

Cheers,

I went cheap and used a piece of 1/2 foam board to line the inside of my door sealed on the edges with tape.
