Nice. It looks pretty darn clean and well kept. SWMBO's Grant went a long way in securing a good future keezer!

It was a great surprise when I got home at 11pm to see....It needs to be cleaned really bad inside. It was used by a retire guy who just spend his day's fishing and this was his freezer fro it. Now he is moving and cleaning up so I got a good deal rigth off the CL.

That's awesome, building one's own HB equipment is the most satisfaction I get from homebrewing...other than drinking :-). I got my chest freezer off craiglist for 80 bucks and did a number on it, its my brewing crowning achievement. Take a look at my gallery for before and after pics! Let us know if ya have any questions.

I got my first questions:

1) What a good way to clean this freezer in the inside? It still got a catfish smell.
2) How do I handle getting hinges for it cause it has the bar hinge inside the lid.
(I'll get pictures when I get back home, I got called into work a bit ago.)

start with an assload of Oxyclean and go from there. Still stinks? Get some activated charcoal/carbon from the pet store, the cheapest they have, and dump a bunch of that in there for a few days and change it out and see if it smells any less.

Sears website will direct you to their appliance parts section and they have EVERYTHING for that stuff. I got the small plastic push clips that hold the rubber seal onto the lid of my 10 year old freezer I got off craigslist...they probably have what you're looking for.
