Another thing you can use is a piece of whiteboard, instead of cutting the original plastic out you can cut the outer dimension of it on the whiteboard and install the mag strip over it. You can use it to keep track of what is on tap or any notes.

You can see it on the right of this photo but I will look for a better one.

Nice, I just did mine with "chalk-board" - Lowe's was out of the "white board" and my 4912 has a black interior so the green chalkboard color is a bit better match anyhow.
Came out decent, and jeez, it's easily an extra 4 inches of space, if not more.

This is mine, crummy phone camera photo but you can probably get the idea:
Sorry, can't figure out how to paste photo in here...

What are you guys doing to your Sanyo's, tearing out the insides and replacing it with something white?

Actually this is a Danby, it is black and stainless on the outside but white on the inside(Good for telling when it needs a cleaning). I picked it up for $80 new so I could resist at the time. I had 3 gal cornies so I was not overly concerned with the freezer compartment.

OK, alles klar.

Make's sense. Nice find.

Hey whodwho... we've got the same Danby in our kitchen right now.

Are you using a picnic tap? If not, how are you running your lines to the taps?

I got ours for about $60 at Target a few weeks ago.

Yes just been using a picnic tap for now, I do have a tower for it but haven't got around to putting it on.

From the bottom of the fridge to the bottom of the freezer is 24 1/4". The freezer compartment could be bent down and swung to the back wall if necessary and you would end up with 28 1/2".
