Default Picking up my keg fridge tomorrow...how should I pimp it out???

I finally found a fridge in the classifieds for $50 that is super clean. Getting a beer fridge from someone in Provo, Utah. How classic is that? I'm thinking that I want to put four taps on the front. Any tips? It's just a basic Hotpoint fridge with a freezer on top (for glassess and hops).

make sure you drill the tap holes low enough so the freezer can open without hitting the tap handles! if you have to move it on its side get it back upright asap and then let it settle overnight before plugging it back in.

Or some folks fix the freezer and fridge doors together to open both at the same time. This way the taps can be mounted high up on the fridge door.

Downside is both doors open together as one unit.

You want Pimp? Purple velvet and leopard print.
Make sure you get enough beer line and clean it often.

Where will it be located? Garage / man cave or living room / den? Garage or man cave is anything goes. Living room or den is going to get unwanted input from a wife or girlfriend.

Would keeping dead hookers in the freezer be pimp?

Get one of these, put the outdoor probe in the fridge. The display is magnetic and will stick to the front of the door.

I like this! I was thinking about some sort of external thermometer to fine tune my beer temp.

Yeah, I've ruined a fridge before by putting it on it's side. We'll be using my sister-in-law's horse trailer to pick it up. Thanks for the advice though. Lot's of people don't know that you should NEVER put a fridge on it's side!

Leopard print and velvet would be cool but it's just going to be in the garage. I see you are in Japan. We had an exchange student from Yokohama move in next door yesterday. Next month two Brazilian female college students move in! WOW!!!
