Default Compact Fridge (kegerator) capacity

Two questions:

1) Are the Sanyo 4912 and Kenmore 4.9 cubic foot refrigerators similar in dimension?

2) How many corny's can you fit in a fridge this size. (Note: I'd have to leave the CO2 outside and run a shank connection to the interior, as I have a 30lb steel tank.)

Thanks.

If you are still shopping, consider the 5.5cf "Holiday" brand. $140 at Lowe's and 3 cornys fit in there with a tad of elbow room.

Thanks.
You can run the airline from your Co2 through the drain hole above the compressor on the Sanyo 4912, this is what I have done. You will need to remove the rubber grommet for the drain hole first though. The 4912 will hold Two 5 gallon cornies, if you want to hold more then get a bigger fridge and do a custom setup--you can always search http://richmond.craigslist.org/ to find an older fridge to convert.

Default Kenmore 4.9

I've got a kenmore 4.9 and it fits 2 corny's and a 5# tank inside... plus i still have the door compartments that hold 6 cans and one tray that can hold about 6 bottles of homebrew or 3 bottles of wine.

Yeah, I just removed the bottom shelf. If there were someway to modify it to make it narrower I'd put it back in.
