Just need to clean up the finish and some of the welds. I placed my hole towards the front in the first 4" as that was the safest place to drill through. The false top fastens to the back where the stock lid screwed in. We also took off the hinge of the stock top and welded it underneath the stainless false bottom. 2 kegs fit inside (1 is inside carbing). Really simple conversion. Only thing left to do is buy some new tap handles, clean up the finger prints, and get some beer on tap!!!

Below is the rear access panel if I ever need to change lines etc...
Very nice Kice.
You fabricated the top your self or bought it?
Thanks. The project was a joint effort between myself, my dad, and a friend of the family. It took less than a week - maybe 8 hours at most from start to finish. I'm a big fan of the brushed stainless =)
where the coolant lines just going back in forth on top of the fridge in a zig zag partner and is it just lines and not a coolant plate on top i would like to go in the center of the top or in the back of the top with my 3 inch and bolt bolt style tower thank u
made the conversion this past weekend, worked great. Followed the posted advice to dig through the insulation and find the coolant lines. I elected to use the plastic top; I just mounted a piece of plywood underneath it and used shorter bolts to attach it to the plywood. Worked like a charm, and the tower is rock solid!
I picked this up, 20% off plus my soon to be wife's employee discount cant complain about saving 80 bucks. I know it will fit a standard carboid if you take all the shelves out and put something in the bottom to set it up at least an inch. I have yet to see what kind of temp it maintains on the warmest setting though.
