I scored a fridge off the boss for zilch. i made a couple of measurements and it seems i'm about 10-15mm short of squeezing a corny with disconnects height wise. if that was all good, i could shoehorn 4 of the buggers in it. i'll throw up a couple of photos, if i can trim some off the top and the compressor hump its all good. Any fridgos know if this is possible?

one with the model no, blah blah.....:

if you cut into the compressor hump you may find that the actual compressor itself is too close to give you the extra height needed and you would still have to seal it up with something. You could take the back off and see how close the compressor is to the actual hump and if it will give you what you need.
if you cut into the top of the fridge lining your going to have a job trying to seal the insulation back up again. And there may be wiring up in there although it usually routes to the rear of the fridge. Either way is going to be a big job and will certainly hack your fridge and look a bit messy. If you dont cover and seal it up properly you will have mould developing later down the track. I personally wouldnt do it.

Does your kegs have the rubber boot? Could you take this off? if you only need 10-15mm that might do it. Or put 2 cornies on the floor and 2 9 litre kegs on the hump.
Will 4 cornies fit on the floor if you remove the door lining and re-line with whiteboard or white masonite? That would be your better option. Its hard to tell from your photos but looks like they might?
