Default Freezer to kegerator?

Has any of you converted a freezer into a kegerator? Do I need some kind of thermostat converter?

Pretty sure you need a refrigerator thermostat (or other temperature controller) or you won't be able to get it warm enough.

I have a deep freeze converted to a kegerator for my 5 gallon kegs. I have a Temp controller in line, and keep it at 36 degrees. I also have 2 - 2 tap towers on the top of the door, and a distribution header inside. I can raise the door wide open with the towers on it, and I have plenty of room to lager, tap, or store kegs inside it too.

My brewing compadre' Ian just scored one very similar to this on ebay for a good bit less. Maybe he'll post the price if he stops working for a bit this morning. (He works right next to me.) I think it was less than $30.

That'd be me. I got THIS for $9.99 and $10 shipping. It doesn't have a power cord or bypass so I will have to splice a couple pieces of extension cord to it. But way cheaper than the one sold by HBS's.
