Default My build, not for the faint of heart

I know im sort of new around here but alas I built what I think is a fine rig.

This is my journey

Had to make some modifications to my lil fridge. The front doors stuck out to far and the little lips on the sides of the fridge stuck out to far to fit 2 kegs.

So I cut it all off




here are my pieces for the poor man tower (dont worry Tim is workin on dreaming one up for me.)


Fiber glass for the front door


fiber glass sides






mat down


First coat


second mat down

Anyway I have a small computer fan in the inside hooked up to a old phone charger pumping cold air into the tower and it is working great!

I wasn't planning on this being so in depth or involved but a little time and effort was worth not having to purchase a different fridge since I had already had this one for a few years. Plus I think it looks good.

Oh and not being able to view pics on here FTL....

You should be able to inline the images with the toolbar icon thingy for 'insert image' Let me try and show you:

[img]some url[img]

Put a '/' in the last [img]

Nice job man, I'm impressed. The idea for the tower makes total sense for someone wanting to do it cheaper and just as efficient.
