This is my new 3 tap LSU kegerator that I just finished building. I bought the fridge for $20 off Craigslist. It had been poorly spray painted, so I wrapped the entire fridge with graphics. The drip tray was welded out of 1/8" aluminum, and features a removable printed mesh insert. I removed the interior door panel and replaced it with a piece of plastic sheeting to free up more space inside the fridge. The drip tray drains into a Tide bottle (perfect fit.)

Very nice! Mine looks like a turd compared to it.

Can you lay a CO2 bottle down like that? I thought the liquid CO2 would run into and ruin the regulators.

Default my new old-gal

i'm the new proud caretaker of this old gem. she's in the kitchen now awaiting her makeover. not too pretty right now. i'll clean her up as best as i can, replace the lines, put on a different tap handle, might screw on a driptray -- not sure if i want to mess up her svelte figure.

i had intended to build one originally, so i have a bunch of extra parts, so i may end up swapping out the tap, although the one that's on there now should clean up just fine. i also have a temp regulator that might help her out.

the guy i bought it from had it for 15 years and used it lovingly (and frequently from what i can tell). it came with the co2/regulator and extra tap handles and commercial taps too, including one for Guinness (as well as the Guinness handle!).

here's the new queen of the house:

Well I have been using it for about 2 weeks now like that with no problems, but after doing a little research online, it does appear that you are not supposed to operate a regulator with the CO2 tank sideways. I will have to make some modifications to it. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

A little TLC and she will be a BEAUTY With all that room in there, I would be adding a tap or two. I don't know why I like old fridges soo much...

Just picked this up for 75 bucks, I need to hit it with the buffer and it should shine like chrome.
