    I've been looking for this opportunity for quite some time. Not really looking, but waiting.

    My family has been into camping for a long time. Some of the trailers are new and some are old. Well guess what happened several weeks back? One of the fridges went out and I volunteered real fast like to take and dispose of the thing (at my house).

    And here we go. I've been working on this project now for the last couple weeks and took a few pics along the way.

    So here it is fresh out of the trailer.

    It was time to start ripping shit out. Shelves, "the cooler fins", and the cooling system. I was trying to figure out where to cut the lines and drain the fluid into the air. Oops did I say that.
    Didn't have to. The whole back came off as one. It wasn't as clean as it sounds. Lots of foam to dig out. Friggin messy shit.

    Now I needed to fill the hole. I cut a pc of wood to cover the hole and attached it to the plastic with small nuts and bolts.

    I decided I was going to put four 150watt equivs across the top. Actual wattage is 40watts ea. Total 600 watt equiv and 160 actual watts. Total lumens 10,900. Two 2700k and two 6500k. I will most likely be adding additional side lighting.

    Definitely will need a fan or two to exhaust some of this closed in heat. I found a green led fan that looks pretty cool. Bought two but only installing one for now. I wired the lights in parallel so if one light goes out the rest stay on.

    The single fan did not work too well. These CFLs have a lil heat to em. I had to add another fan.

    And two air intakes down low. I was drilling one of the intake holes and encountered some wires. I cut them off and moved on.

    There is a lot of light leak. I'll fix it later. This is on each side.

    11_21_15d.JPG

    Forgot to mention. The holes for the fans and air intakes are made with this. It's 3"s across.

    Now I have this tonight. Two fans sucking air out and two intakes. All four lights have been on with the fans running for the last hour. It's maintaining 79 degrees inside.

    Forgot to mention. The thermostat controller is from my home brew stuff. Works great here. Both fans are hooked up to it. The temp sensor is below the lights. I have the fans set to come on at 75 degrees. They are currently running constantly and holding at 79. House temp is 68.

    This cab is far from finished, but as long as it can hold 79, it's ready in my opinion. These volunteers are over due to be planted. They are all fems. Either AKR, Berry Ryder, or BKRs. Dunno. Found em on my desk.

    This fridge has three of these adjustable shelves which will makes things easier for sure.

    Let's see what the cab can do as is. These are fem autoflowers

    This is a nice bonus. There are two of these shelves in the door that are adjustable. They fit 4 red cups perfectly.

    11_23_15.JPG

    Also this grate is adjustable from top to bottom. Have three of them. Another nice bonus.

    Here's the freezer section. "Germination Station"?. Nute storage?

    Right now the fridge is being used to germ seeds. My room is full of autos and ONE photo (Critical OG Cookies). @dream2003

    image.jpeg

    Pretty soon here I'll put it in the fridge and flip it to 12/12. I'll document here.

    The fridge has not changed. I needed to put it on hold. Time to get going on it again.
