Earlier this week, on Tuesday to be exact, I picked up the fridge which was finally ready for pick up. Took over 3 weeks from over east. Well not really an issue, but the screws I order from Hong Kong last week came today. I am also waiting for a window motor for my Merc from over east and that was ordered over 2 weeks ago. Should have ordered it from Singapore or some other place, probably would be here by now.

The fridge is a LG 310 Inverter fridge and I wanted to see the temperature of the side walls when running to finally decide on the air gap around it. Only got warm in the beginning when starting up and after that the heat development in the side walls is really minimal, nit much to worry about. With a lower vent at the floor and an higher vent this is easily controlled.

This fridge has exactly the ratio between freezer and fridge we were looking for. We will also run our Vitrifrigo 12V with external compressor as a vegie fridge when required. This way we can load fresh produce when available and last a bit longer than just a few days.

We have also finalised the measurements and shape of the kitchen now. I can finalise the design and have the components CNC cut for easy installation. We will also use the alu honeycomb but with a laminated skin and the alu extrusions as trim. Same design as Trailstar used it before they disappeared. We liked this modern, technical look.
