Default Frigidaire Wine Chiller as Ferm Chamber

I found this Wine Chiller on craigslist for $30 and the guy said it did not cool anymore but was less than 2 years old. At that point, i figured it would be something simple. $10 later and it is fully functional. The digital controls go from 40 to 65F. It is fairly easy to get to the control panel and I am going to document what all goes into this, I just wanted to get a post up to see if anyone had any experience or ideas. Another thing is I want to find a way to fit my 5 gallon fermenter and 2 Mr. Beer LBK's in there...





The light looks really bright but is very dim in there. I might be able to actually rig something up to have a covered lamp to produce heat and tap into the power source from that light for the heater...
