Don't disregard the opportunity cost time and effort.

$0.00? Not a bad start.

Yes the cooling panel could have definitely wrapped around a corny no problem.

And unless OK working my time isn't worth anything lol. The whole process took her and I an hour.

I know it is not fully complete but of curiosity, how well insulated would something like this be? Would it be on par as the original mini fridge? I ask because if so, I might consider doing something like this. It looks really nice!

Should be. The insulation of the walls of the fridge were only an inch thick, as well as the hot side coils running through it. This is the same thickness and the hot side coils are relocated. Our second faucet should be here this Friday and we plan on finishing the project this weekend.

About 90% complete as of today, I'll post pictures later. It appears to not be cooling though, which will be disapointing to say the least. been running about an hour, sitting at 60F (80F ambient)..... cross your fingers.

The cooling tray is icing over, and I have a fan recirculating the air. Perhaps its not air tight enough
