Default Need help. How do I turn Red Bull fridge into kegerator?

I recently bought a Red Bull fridge and want to turn it into a kegerator. Any suggestions. Can I drill a hole through the glass?

Does the light wiring take up the entire top? It would be awesome to have a chrome tower coming out of the lit up bull.

A shank going through that glass is going to look messy and bad.

Not sure about the wiring. I would assume drilling a hole would screw some things up in there. There's always the option of going through the side of the fridge which isn't glass. Would that work?

I've been told on a normal fridge that some of the cooling lines are in the walls. If you hit one while drilling you just junked the fridge.

If I were you I'd at least take off the top shroud and take a peek inside to see if going out the top is possible.

I was wondering what you ended up doing with this? I am getting ready to convert mine this week wanted to know if you encountered any issues drilling in the side?

Those fridges are a waste to try and turn into a keezer.

Can't do the glass.. well... you can't make it look good.

The coils are in the side too.

Awesome man that's a huge help. Take some of the wonder out of me messing anything up. I planned on drilling about the same spot. Thanks again
