With the door shelves in, that's got to be a tight fit.

Looks great. How bout a rundown of what you purchased and where, along with the cost of the items??. Im planning on doing one next weekend if I can get all the parts assembled in time.

I second the request. Also anyone partial to the tower or straight through the door of a larger model? Dumb question but where a unit through the door is easily accessable (had one in college), is it painful at all to access, clean, replace hoses running up through a tower?

I got the fridge from bestbuy around christmas time for the same sale price they have now. I got my tank, regulator, and draft tower from beveragefactory.com. They seem to have random sales unannounced. I got the stainless dual tower for 105 and the tank for 50 from them. This was one on the easiest things I have ever built! Just make sure that you measure twice and cut once I used a 2 inch hole saw dead center. I didn't use that corn starch trick I just measured 7 inches from the back then added about two more inches. i do not have my co2 tank inside the fridge because I have this monster dual gauge regulator. i am going to get a piece of wood to add to the back so I can put the tank in the back so the regulator wont hit the door.

I just got home from BB and picked up my own 4912M. Now all I need is a tower, hoses and clamps...oh, yeah, tanks and regulator...well, I'm a few steps closer any way...

I was looking at the freon element that makes up the whole back. I think you would be better off making two upside down "J's" and just hang the regulator over the top, like hanging a coat hanger.

That kegerator is a beautiful piece of art. Looking forward to building one, hopefully by the end of this year.
