I'll post the replies here to both threads. You may have the answers already from reading the other thread.
1. I just used metal flashing from Home Depot to line the doors.
2. Everything is controlled automatically by the controllers. I just didn't want the fans or heater running if I was doing something prolonged in the fridge side. I also wanted the ability to only run 1 fan (which I do most of the time), unless I needed to cold crash quick.
3. This is the heater: Lasko 102 My Heat Personal Heater. This thing works great and is only 200 watts. Even better is the price, for just over $20. In my opinion, this makes the light bulb in a paint can seem archaic. I picked mine up at Walmart, but they are available in other stores. Heres a link to Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/41248980?w...549289&veh=sem
4. From the other thread: Just curious why you chose Love controllers over STC-1000F controllers. Cost difference is pretty significant and both appear to have the same features. Relay amperage?
Back when I built these the STC-1000's were available but only displayed in Celsius and I didnt feel like converting everything to a chart stuck on the fridge. I can't remember but I do think that one of the contacts is rated at a higher amperage.
Here is the link to the other build, just in case anybody wants to look at it.
