Default My 1st kegerator build

Hello. This is my first real post and I wanted to share my kegerator build real quick. I recently finished my 1st brew - a Maple Brown Ale. It's currently in the keg at 12psi waiting for carbing to complete.
So I got a free 5 cu/ft freezer from a neighbor. Built an 8" collar out of 1x8 whiteboard, 3 coats of gloss black krylon, 2 coats of clear. Insulated with 1.5" foam board. 2 standard taps from HomeBrewStuff, 5lb tank, 3 way manifold. I have one outlet reserved for force carbing an extra keg or connecting to my beer gun. Pics of the cool QDC setup are below as well. I didn't take pics during the build, but the process mirrors many other similar ones on here.

No leakage. Tested them submerged in water at 20 psi. No bubbles.
