First time poster, but long time lurker. After following numerous builds, going to try my own. Actually put out the call for an old fridge and got two responses (one that is now sitting on my dad's farm, and the other one sitting in my brother's basement). Fridge #1 - 1955 Firestone Tire and Rubber Co Fridge #2 - 1950 International Harvester Initial thoughts: I think my preference will be to use the Firestone. The fridge door does not cover up the the bottom where the compressor was and has a much better latch. The cover for it is laying on top of the fridge so I would be able to put it on hinges and make a cabinet/slide out drawer for the charcoal box. The Firestone is 40x24x13 (h w d). The IH is 42x22x15. I would have a 6 or 8 inch duct between the charcoal box and the upper fridge box. I would like to have some type of damper on it also if anyone has thoughts how to do this. Above the opening I would have a cast iron pan that would hold water. I would space out shelves every 7 inches for 4 shelves. This would allow for about 1,200 square inches (24x13x4). Will also have a simple exhaust at the top with another damper. Tested the Firestone. Appears to be mostly metal, so not much work to be done. May have to ask a friend of mine if he wouldn't mind sandblasting the fridge to remove the paint (the previous owner used it to store paint). My sister was able to get me 2 4 feet x 4 feet of expanded metal for nearly nothing from her work, so I'll have plenty to make more racks as well as decide what I want to do with the other fridge for the next project. Is there any major details I'm missing?
