I have a GE fridge were the freezer is the full width of the inside of the fridge. I have three ball locks and CO2 inside.

I'm on the forum looking for tips on cutting/drilling holes for my shanks.

With my kegs at 19 inches wide you are taking up ~15.5 or so inches in depth. Looks like you are good.

hi there,
I have restored my Westinghouse which is similar to this one. My only concern is that I need a handle for that which it missed from the beginning when I bought it.

Very nice! Could get creative on handle and use something like a beer tap, a metal stein, etc.

I'd replace the seal with a magnetic one to keep the door closed and then maybe look for a chrome truck door handle or something that will fit in that slot.

Big Chill makes vintage look refrigerators and they have some good looking door handles. You may be able to see if they sell them as replacement parts.

Finding an original one may be a challenge, but you can probably keep your eye on ebay or similar sites.
