Here are a couple more pics of my control panel. I paid $50 for this low security pistol/ammo case that i think will work great.

Anyway, i have the back panel made to mount all of the components. I have installed the LCD screen, GFCI donuts, and both cable grips for the massive 50A x 2 i will be supplying the panel. Not that exciting yet but its a start.

The dude in the first picture of your model is wearing a dress that looks like the kegs beside him.

Tomorrow i will cap off all of the ends and add caster plates and casters. I also need to come up with something for a panel mount. I haven't designed anything for that yet and i think im just gonna wing it.

Here are some pics of todays progress. Very productive weekend on the rig! Now i need to devise a removeable panel mount and it should be ready for powder coat. Anybody local to Charlotte you would recommend? The guy coating my kegs cant do the frame because his oven isnt big enough. Anyway, latest pics:




Here are a couple of the tilt platforms clamped in place:

got the kegs back from powder coat last night. They look pretty good and not nearly as much work as polishing each one!
