Default Dynasty R450-C Kegerator Conversion Help

I have acquired a Dynasty R450-C (1994) model mini fridge from someone at work, and want to convert it to a kegerator.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any information about this fridge, and need to be pointed in the right direction.

According to the label on the back, the dimension are:

19.06" w
21.61" d
33.46" h

Here is the product label on the back, showing the model #:


Here is the label from the compressor in the back:


As it currently stands, this freezer compartment sits too low to get any kegs underneath it, and will need to be modified:


Here is a shot of the front, which I will need to repaint:


a shot of the inside of the door, which, I would like to modify and just make it all flat:


A full shot of the inside:

This fridge looks a lot like the magic chef fridge I'm in the process of converting. It's 4.4 cubic feet. Bending the freezer tray can be a b*tch because you can ruin it if you kink the coolant line. This is a pretty good video that hopefully will be able to help you. i was lucky enough to score the exact fridge from the video for only $25.

Thanks for the information.

Yeah, I knew I was going to have to remove that metal freezer section and bend it or move it somehow, so this gives me ideas.

I will also have to definately remove the inner door area, to have more room.

I also then need to figure out if I want to install a tower dispenser, or just go through the door. It will mostly depend on if I can cut through the top with cutting any of the coolant lines.

I would prefer to mount a tower and do it that way, as I don't really have a shelf that I could use to bring the fridge up to height.

I'm planning on going through the top for mine for a tower. You could do one of those cornstarch tests to see if there's any lines on the top. I get the impression with these types of fridges there isn't really much going through the top so it's pretty easy to put a tower on them. Also if you put taps on the door they're kind of low for pouring beer.

Did you finish your dynasty fridge? Where did you drill for the tower?
