Has anyone who used this models internal have trouble finding the coarse screw? I can't find mine like other users have.

What kind of drip tray is that? I've been looking to finally get one.

Just ordered my Black Frigidaire 7.2 from hhgregg, on sale for $242.99. If you sign up for their mailing list, they send you a 10% off coupon right away. Shipping to my local store is free. After tax it came out to $231.81.

It's a good fridge and to me just the ideal size for a keezer. What are your plans for it?

The same as everyone else, I guess. My coworker offered me some walnut or cherry boards for the collar. I plan on dovetailing the corners with inlaid dovetails, haven't seen that yet...

As for price matching, I haven't tried. Probably not, since it's a different part number. Best Buy can't special order the black. I would have preferred Best Buy...

Default Keezer

+1 to Quaffer, thanks for the inspiration and details on your build.

Just got mine into my game room today. 3 tap Perlick setup and drip tray from KegCowboy with dual regulator. Good prices, first order had issues but the staff there was great fixing it and EXTREMELY fast shipping (plus it was free at the time!). Chest freezer from Lowes. Search around, I found mine at Sears for $229 (Lowes at the time was $269), so Lowes does price match + 10% off.

I know this is on page 47 of this thread and I don't need to be rambling about how/where/what of my build, but much thanks to Quaffer and HBT!

Very nice job!
I'm in the planning stage, and you answered some questions that I didn't even think of. Thanks for sharing.

I have a question about temperature control, can I use my sensor from an older fridge and put it on my freezer? I have done this but it doesn't seem to be working like it should, did I miss something?!
