Looking great, I assume it will be in mint condition after you finish it.
Is that tap on fridge door?

Nice work! Just turned my Grandfather's Hotpoint chest freezer into a keezer with a collar as I just couldn't bring myself to drill holes through the lid!

This is the funny thing. Looking on craigslist when I found it and went to pick it up for $25. Boy tells me that his grandfather used it as a Kegerator back in the day, gave it to his dad and they had it growing up as long as he can remember!! Cant see why someone would let something like that go that had been in the family?!

All i would have been thinking is, damn they dont make them like they used too.

Good luck finding any fridge or freezer now adays that will last 2-3+ generations.

If you get 10 years out of one your lucky.

Damn that looks nice, I wish I would have taken the time to finish my vintage fridge like that.
