Have you seen anyone do this? If so what did they do for shelving and stability.....if losing the center divider added any.

I'd imagine a makeshift shelf out of wood or some other material would suffice...then again I'm no engineer.

i have a buddy that did it and replaced the shelves with iron pipe frames and wood top. lowes cut the black pipe to spec for free so he just screwed everything together and added 2 shelves.

he started VERY CAREFULLY from one side with a dremel and pulled the sheeting away to ensure there were no refrigerant lines running behind that wall. once he was sure he cut it all away with a jig saw i believe.

don't just start hacking at things, you may hit something valuable and make a nice, big paperweight.
