Was this the FR464 model? I just ordered one from Walmart and intend on converting it as well.

Thanks

Edit: Just found this thread where a FR464 model was used so it looks like I'm good to go. Unless the specs have changed dramatically in the last few months...

Default This may be the deal of the decade.... MAYBE

I brought my Igloo 4.6 FR465 home tonight and I can now reveal the interior dimensions. The dimensions of the full height interior space are 8 3/4D X 17W X 29H. This would indicate if you're using ball lock cornys that are true to the 8.5" X 25" size, you've got an exact fit for $124! (you'll have to shave the shelf guides)

The rear shelf is 6.5" from back to front and 21" high. Plenty of room for a 5lb Co2 tank.

There is a "freezer" in this thing, but no coolant lines whatsoever. It's a plastic box that readily comes out without tools. The thermostat will likely need to be relocated, but it only has an electrical wire attached to it, seems like a very small endeavor.

here's my issue that i could use some advise on: I got tired of waiting on the usual suppliers to come up with used cornys, so I bought new ones. Nobody except nothern brewer gives dimensions on these. They say +1.5" in width, but same height and volume... seems mathematically impossible. Does anyone out there have new kegs they'd care to share dimensions on?

I bought from learntobrew, if it makes a difference...

Thanks a lot for this thread, I am planning on ordering one of these from wal-mart tomorrow. I will post how it goes. I am planning on using 2 ball locks from the Kegco system. Price is currently $109 on this unit.

Hi, i was wondering where you drilled the holes in the top? I have the same model and have been trying to find some details on where the lines run. Any help would be great!!! THanks
