I have the tank on the outside, but that's a personal preference.

I just left my panel in tact. Tighter fit, but works none the less.

Yeah see for now i want to keep the tank inside the fridge but later on i might want to keep it outside. If i decide to do that then i'll just look up how other people ran the lines. But what i'm concerned about for now is how to get the seal on the door (with some kind of glue or something) so that i don't have to go tearing into the door panel and have the option of later putting the door panel back in should i decide to put the tank outside. Does anyone know what would just hold that seal on?

Use clear kitchen caulk. Sticky enough to adhere, but plyable enough to remove without too much work or damage.

Great idea. I'll have to go get some tomorrow. Now about my connection problem, i think i figured out that i just have to take the monster connections off the tower lines and throw the quick disconnects from the picnic taps on there. Only problem is the lines are all connected onto the barbs with those crimp hose clamps. Anyone know how to get those off?

Your best bet is to cut the lines and refit the ends with proper hardware.

I did exactly what this guy did with the door. http://community.livejournal.com/hom...ng/413981.html

It worked perfectly. Trace around the door panel and screw holes, cut it out, and she goes right back on, gasket and all. I may end up needing the door panel if I upgrade down the road to something that holds more kegs.

Yeah, I did the same thing with the door panel. I used 3\16" masonite and the door panel is in the basement in case I want to use it ever again.
