looks sweet, but can you post an image of what it looked like before you started.

Go figure, I didn't take one!!! I picked it up from my buddy's house and had to take the doors off to get it out of the basement. I also left all of the shelves and drawers at his house. Since the first thing I would do would be to take the doors off... well you get the picture (no pun intended) Trust me when I tell you it was just a tall white rectangle with an ice/water dispenser on the outside with shelves and drawers inside. It was actually in very good shape. Sorry...

Nice job! I've been doing work on the outside of my side by side, purchased the ebay controller but have yet to find the time and/or nerve to start with cutting up the inside. I am planning to do a kegerator/fermentation chamber as well.

Thanks. Time is the big part. The wife sometimes complains about the time I spend in the garage! If you have everything you need, start cutting!

Back to the freezer door today. In goes the Love TSS2 Controller. Next I attached the wood to the front by going thru the back, then added the insulation.

The sheet metal goes on next. I took the plastic out to make more room on the inside. I used the old plastic for a pattern and screw holes. Thats one side done! One more to go...

Worked on the internal wiring today. This is the nice Wal-Mart 200 watt heater that works nicely and has a fan of its own. After looking at my wiring options I decided that I had the most room behind the false wall of the freezer side so I ran all of the wires there to splice together. I know it looks like a rats nest but when working with stranded wire it's tough. The original control housing went back in nicely and looks like you could adjust the temperature settings from there...

It's ALIVE!! I was suprised how nice and clean the outside looks. The red displays look nice against the white. I left it running last night for a test run and everything seems to be going off without a hitch. I still have to add several clamps to the wiring harness going to the door and and mount the temperature probes on the doors. Then I move on to the shelving. The part that sucks is I have to take both doors back off to get it back into my buddy's basement. The freezer door is easy, as I used the old wiring going to the door, so I just hace to disconnect the connector, but the refridge side I have to take everything apart to take the door off. Maybe my next build I'll use some kind of connector to make things easier.

Have you test fitted the freezer side to see how many kegs you fit?
