Hi guys. this is about converting a 7cuft chest freezer to a refrigerator that will be used down in baja and will be powered by solar and an inverter. So heres what I did. I removed the metal skin and picked the evaporator coils out of the foam.I then added 3" of foam to the sides,top and bottom.Then I covered it with FRP and mounted the coils to the sides of the box. Yes its quite a conversation piece,it actually looks pretty cool.I will be using a johnson control external thermostat that I bought from one of the kegerator outfits.
So.... Did I build an effecient refrigerator or did I just waste a bunch of time and money????? thanks guys mark
