Default Help with Manifold build

I am hoping to put together a manifold today, but I have no idea what pieces I need. I have a 5 gallon Igloo cooler. I already have the weldless ball valve kit. Can somebody help me out.

before you go too far, you may want to consider a bigger cooler.

I am not doing anything too big for now and I already have a 5 gallon one laying around. I am trying to get the pieces I need to convert the cooler I have on hand.

besides going from a round 5 gallon to a 10 gallon round is pretty painless and quick
