Here is everything to convert a wine cooler to a Coolidor and the links:
Avanti model EWC28 thermoelectric ( only type to get for better RH control) I got it off ebay from anythingforsale it is a scratch & dent model with only small dents to the lower rear corners for $169.00 delivered, If you get one of these make sure you read the discription of the damage.

To get the correct temp, mine wouldn't go above 58 deg, I bought a Johnson controler from Williams Brewing for $54.16 delivered.

You can also buy 65% beads but at a cost of $65.00 for 2 lbs I'll stick with the watersorb

I have 2 Oust Fans I bought at the Grocery store on sale for $5.00 each, don't use the scents just the fans.

I went to Rocker and bought Sp Cedar for about $70.00, I bought too much but will use the rest on the next Coolidor I'm building, you will need 1 pc. 5" x 48" and 1 2" x 48" to make 2 shelves. You don't have to get the Sp Cedar but it really makes the coolidor smell lika a humidor ONLY GET SPANISH CEDAR FOR THE SMELL AND IT HELPS CONTROL THE RH

And 2 Hygrometer, 1 in the top & 1 in the bottom, also from them.

So after all this I let it set for 5 days with the polymers in it to season and get the humidity to stabilize. It now sets at 68deg and 65% RH

I did also use a Cigar Oasis to help in the seasoning but it will cause condensation so I pulled it out once I put the cigars in it
