Default Question - Take a Look at This Chest Freezer

Had this come up locally on craigslist and it's the size I've been looking for to move away from a kegerator to a keezer.

Question though.. take a look at the pics and tell me if that type hinge will be a problem when making the collar ??

Not a bad price for a 16 cf but NOT happy about the color haha

I think I saw a keezer build on here whit the same style hinge. I think they ended up just buying another hinge from the hardware store.

Are you crazy? That RED color rules!!!

Wouldn't you just be able to install a different hinge on it if needed?

Exactly like my old one, I just put a tower on top. The kegs cleared the top just fine without any collar.

The red is nice looking.. but I'm a diehard Duke fan and Red just isn't my color! My friends that are NC State fans wouldn't let me live it down haha

Maybe I could paint it! LOL

I thought I had seen a thread of someones build that looked like those type hinges and thought they may have just done away with those hinges and put some on the back, but I couldn't find it and didn't know how much trouble it would be...

I dig the red, then you could build a matching jocky box out of an old red metal coleman cooler!

If i were starting fresh I may would go that route but since I already have 3 taps in my kegerator that I'll be moving over to the keezer I'd hate to spend the extra $$ to go with towers..

Heck I may end up getting it anyway.. it's about too nice to pass up for that price.. I called and spoke to the guy and he said he repairs them and painted this one.. said he asked his little girl Red or Blue and she picked Red! haha

I painted mine with rust oleum black hammered finish paint. All I did was wash with oxyclean, sand to allow adhesion and then rolled it on. Turned out great. It only took about 3 hours.
