This gives me hope for my mini freezer I have downstairs. Second kegerator in garage here I come! haha some day. Need to build the full size on for the basement and build the bar first I guess.

Would placing a pipe of 1/2" copper pipe or something rounded benind the cooling line help prevent it from kinking? I have the same fridge but am stressed about kinking that line. Any tips would be appreciated.

Cheers.

I have one of these as well. Anybody check the top yet to see if there are any lines through the top of the unit? I want to add a draft tower to mine, as well.

You hear a slight hiss, and then you will start muttering choice four letter words.

This looks alot like the $50 kenmore I got off of craigslist and am doing the same thing to. I wasn't too gentle with the bend, but i didn't hear a hiss.... so hopefully it works. It did crack the paint where the pipe flattens out but then, I did see a bead of water freeze on the cold plate... hopefully done tomorrow!

One question.

T-Maxx or E-Maxx on top of the fridge?

Never mind, I just saw that it's an E-Maxx. Awesome man, that really brings me back to my RC days. I have an 1/8th scale now, but haven't used it in years.
