is the 4912 big enough to fit a full sized keg?

they are ball lock kegs. And I didn't notice excessive foaming.

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.
You can see how I mounted my regulator here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=19596

OK, I see what you did...you used the holes that were already there.

Were the existing screws long enough?

Is the therm addition necessary? Good idea about using one of the vials and the gel.

I removed the top last night and cut out the fins. I went to the larger square also for more stability after I find/cut a board to fit.

I still have to read the instructions for drilling the hole later as I don't have a tower yet. I go on travel this weekend so I'll have 2 weeks to get one I guess.

Yeah, the screws were definitely long enough. The vial with gel maybe isn't necessary but since I went ahead and added a Ranco to best control the temperature, I went ahead and used the vial of gel to take the ambient temperature.
