oh yeah forgot to ask.

should i take off the compressor and all the coils from the back?
and the little freezer section on the inside?

Yes to the compressor, depends on the freezer. The freezer adds another shelf. So it depends if you need the shelf, or extra box space. I left mine in there as I figured it to be a pain in the ass to take it out, and it would probably look worse.

My .02 worth:

If it's a nice one, runs, and someday may end up out in the garage
holding drinks cause you've invested in a nice piece of furniture like
Kenny's...
Let the cigar boxes do the cedar trick..ie, don't glue cedar inside...and don't dismantle it.

again, just my .02 worth

I used a scroll saw and cut a stencil out of 1/8 in. plywood. Then used spray glue to hold it in place while a spray painted it on there.

well, i finally got the thing cleaned up! (i'm on vacation and thought i would have lots of time to get things done but i've been having too much fun hanging out with my kids). i do notice there is still a bit of an odor. not overpowering but there. so i'm going to leave it sit open a few more days.

this is a 1.7 cu ft. frig. approx. how much climmax beads do you think i need?
if the odor never completely goes away is there something i can do to get rid of it or is it better to just get rid of the frig and go for a cooler? i really don't need the space right now but the price on the frig was right (free) so i figured what the hell.

also there is a hole in the back where freon tube came through, should i plug it or leave it open as avent?
thanks for the info!

I closed off the whole in mine refrig. It also had an odor to it, so I placed a bowl of baking soda inside for a few days and it helped. Add some spanish cedar (a few broken cigar boxes) and the odor is gone.
