After defrosting, the next step in converting this mini fridge to a fermentation chamber was to remove the door shelves. I took out all the screws under the door seal to remove the entire panel.
I took the seal off the door panel and cut the shelves off using a utility knife with a new blade. I left enough material so the plastic was still rigid enough to support the door seal.
The plastic on the door shelf is very thin so the utility knife went through it fairly easily.
