  • Killer Kegerator

    I decided I would give this it's own thread. Enjoy!

    Here's the process of turning a dead fridge into a custom kegerator.
    Alright kids, here we go...

    The humble beginnings.
    It was out back for a while. Had to replace the compressor...65.jpg
    Had to weld up support to make up for the compressor compartment.
    Machine turning the inner panels.

    Starting the flames.
    The grunt doing the grunt work. My buddy Russ did the actual painting...

      She's done. And it's on wheels...

      If you look close you can see the double tap shank & the new handles I fabricated to replace the cheesy old fridge handles...

            I see a problem with those pix. Who's F-150? Those Wrangler AT tires have to go! That's what mine came with. They bark and squeal at every corner even going 5mph, don't they! The BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A tires are the way to go! Unfortunately, as much tread is left on those tires on an '03 or earlier, looks like they've already been replaced not too long ago with new Wrangler's.


            The kegerator looks unbelievable, though!

              Those are original '01s & I haven't had any problem with them.

                  I really appreciate a guy that goes the extra mile. Looks like Tutles from American Chopper gave you a hand. I'm sure the Killer_Kegerator will hand out some Killer_Hangovers.

                  Nice work.

                        Shame on you. Its not polite to ask. J/K

                        I didn't keep a running total as I first decided to convert that thing late last year & I didn't really think I would be doing as much to it as I did. I kept thinking of other things to make it better.

                        That having been said here is a rough estimate of the costs...
                        The replacement compressor -------- $0 I had one as a spare for my ice machine.
                        The steel for the keg support -------- $30
                        The aluminum for the inside panels - $0 It was an old construction site sign.
                        Goodies from MM --------------------- $300 Taps, drip tray, cleaning stuff, etc.
                        Paint & materials ---------------------- $200 The labor was free. My buddy volunteered his time. Thank you Russel of RS Auto Arts.
                        My time & effort ----------------------- $PRICELESS

                        It was more than I planned on spending but spread out over time, not too bad.

                            That is one bad a@@ kegerator!! Outstanding work, I thought my remedial metal working skills were good. I guess I need to go back to school. I am sure you are enjoying the fruits of your labor.

                              You could probably make some money "pimping kegerators"...
