To avoid having to read the whole post, I want to know whether I can safely drill through the sides (or back) of the fridge shown below and also would appreciate any comments on my plans.
So onto the details and photos.....
I have a small GE Fridge similar to the one below that I want to store my keg(s) in and convert to a kegerator. It isn't big enough to hold the kegs as is so I plan on doing some modification.
The first job is to deal with the icebox.
I am thinking of removing the screws and putting the metal (with coils?) onto the back of the fridge like in the photo below that I took from another thread (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/advi...uction-123128/
I'm hoping that the cooling lines(?) in the top right of the second picture are flexible enough to carefully bend. Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated.
With some cutting of the door shelf I should then be able to get a 5G in the fridge. My next problem will be the CO2. I only have a 20lb tank (and that was hard enough to get but I won't go into why here) so keeping it inside the frisge is not an option so I was thinking about drilling a hole somewhere in the fridge to run the gas line in. The back of the fridge is shown below and I assume that all the working parts are on the putside so as long as I avoid what I can see I can drill anywhere but I am concerned that i might end up hitting something internally and ending up with a very large paperweight. Has anyone with any experience of drilling holes in fridges got any comments or suggestions?
All being well I may then get a 3G to sit on the hump. I'd prefer another 5G in there but suspect I won't be able to make it fit.
Then it's a case of deciding whether to go with taps in the door or a tower!!
Thanks in advance.
