    It comes out pretty damn easy. Cut some wires from the outside. A few screws on the inside and outside. The whole unit slides inside to get it out. Then just walk it out the door. It's a little awkward so takes two people. When it's outside start ripping things off. The whole refrigeration part comes off as a unit without making any cuts in the tubing. This needs to be unscrewed from the back in several places. But once it's done it's done. Then the fun part begins.

    I'm currently starting some snap peas to throw out in the garden here soon.

    When these peas come out I will take the shelves out. I added some sockets down low that can be moved around. Correct lights will be used of course.

    And put this in and see what happens. COC. Critical OG Cookies. It's a reg photo. I have two of these. This one and a smaller one.

    I will need to chop the top though. Probably just bend it over instead.

    This fridge is not nearly done. When I have time………

    OK my fridge is slightly smaller but it only took me like 2and a half hours it's got a pretty strong lite fan intake at the bottom and just a small exhaust hole at top and two fluoros hoping to have three soon.as soon as it was functional I threw in my two super lemon hazes and a couple bagseeds from some decent smoke. 14580209665112065214743.jpg 14580211479951831795657.jpg

    My max vert grow space from bottom of fridge to bottom of lights is exactly 25" and this would burn the leaves. So MAYBE 21"s of total vert grow. This includes the pot.

    Total available grow space:

    Vert - 21"
    Width - 18"
    Depth - 14"

    Change of plans. The COC is not a good choice for the first plant in this fridge. I pushed some extra fem BKR seeds into the ground a couple of weeks ago ouitside next to my hops and they all popped. I will dig one up and pot it. LST is a must here. Plenty of room.

    I'll pick the best one out of these five.
