Default Frigidaire 14cu foot upright freezer - coils in walls?

Model #FFU14F7HBJ Frigidaire Freezer

Does this look like it has cooling coils in the walls?

Or does this just have the coils and everything in the back and just blows cold air in to freeze?

I'm trying to figure out if this can be modified to a lagering chamber and if I can drill through the cabinet walls (sides) without hitting any cooling coils.

The condeser is on the back so you should be 'mostly' clear. Be aware some of these have tubes that go around the door to keep them from sweating but the sides should be mostly clear. Check for areas of heat when the compressor is running.

I was successful. No coils where I had to drill. My Johnson Controls probe is turning it on and off right now

I have the 13.7cf version of this, which looks nearly identical except for all my shelves are wire rack and fixed. The cooling coils are all built into the back (as they are with any self-defrosting freezer I imagine) but the sides of my freezer definitely have condenser coils in them as they get nice and toasty when the freezer is running. Do the sides of this model get warm or is the condenser coil on the exterior back?
