    I have fantasies of using a grocery store display freezer as a HL setup. 6 - 7 ft tall x 6 - 7 ft wide and 3 feet deep, temp controlled, already wired for lights and two glass front doors. That would be great to do a naturalistic HL tank inside of.
    That store freezer would be awesome!! Sounds perfect from the get go.. And yeah, it's the same kind that your talking about. I'll do some research on it. His username was 'Neps'..?

    Yeah, he's mostly on the mantid forum now but his old posts are probably in the archives here. User name was "Neps".

    Is this the guy? Cause I see nothing except that he likes pic posts almost as much as I do.

    I totally agree. I have imagined a fantasy setup like that too.

    You'll have to troll his old posts, hopefully there will be something on his freezer setup.

    I've heard of people getting things like the store freezer off Craigslist for their "man cave" but I don't have a way to lug that up the stairs into my condo... maybe plug it in out in the Garage!

    Yes, I think this is a good idea. You may need to refit the compressor so that it doesn't churn at full blast for hours every time it starts up, but to get it working all you'll basically need is to tweak the thermostat. I imagine that if you were clever you could probably rig some sort of timer in there to automatically have a higher daytime thermostat setting than night.
    That said, you can get something pretty similar from off-the-shelf parts for about $1000; air conditioner, wire racks, cement-mixing tubs and a grow-tent like some of the folks on here use.
    Didn't superimposedhope also have something like this? Or was his a converted shower stall?
