For anybody who converted a free standing fridge, did you use pvc spacers in the door or a scrap piece of wood on the inside of the fridge to make sure the foam didnt get crushed when secureing the nut to the shanks (to get a tight fit)

Here's my latest creation. I sold my two Kenmore (Haier) triple tap kegerators and built an 8 tap (11 keg total) upright keezer.

There's a build thread in my signature.

I did exactly that with PVC piping. Alternatively you can just cut a bigger hole in the foam.

I used shank collars on the inside of the door. I wasn't sure if I wanted black or SS collars, so I ordered both and figured I'd just used the extras on the inside. It gives it a nice clean look on the inside and gives the nut a lot of surface area so it doesn't compress the foam.

Here is my completed 8.8 Kenmore Kegerator. Had a few bumps in the road but I am totally happy with the final results. I cant thank you all enough who have contributed with your posts and supplied so much insight and ideas.

I am using a temp controller that I built myself and have to give credit where it is due:

I only have a single tap but I would like to put something up (Chalk Board) to show what is on tap. I don't really have a good idea of how to make it happen though besides getting the chalk board adhesive. Anyone have any good ideas of what they did?

The other option is a Chalk Board Tap Handle.

I totally want to make a kegerator! And this looks like the best design for me!
Small, a 110volt plug and a top tap!

Is there plans for this?
I am totally new to home brewing and have never built a contraption like this.... How much time and $ was this project?
