There are lines in the top. They are over 0.5 inch deep though. Just be careful when cutting the hole for the tower and it should be fine. There's not much room for taps in the door in this one with standard ball locks.

I've run it down to 42 with no trouble. Never tried to get any lower though I imagine it should do it. Most fridges, full size at least, come set to 38 from the factory. I've fermented my last two batches at 63 easily.

got mine lastnight started the build. it fits two ball locks snuggly after you cut off the tray holders and i had to move the thermostat around a bit. there seems to be plenty of head space to put faucet in door
