Had time this morning before work to mock up the collar and see how it will fit. It's gonna look nice once its sanded and stained. Got 5 faucets coming in the mail from " Learn To Brew" but I think eventually I will go to 8.

Guess we will find out wont we? I can easily stand on each one with zero flex. They are wedged in tight enough I had to hammer them into place, then several 3" wood screws. That is an easy fix if It does break...

Coming along nicely. Got the lid glue to the collar, and the base with wheels completed. Tonight, install the seal gasket around the bottom of the collar, put my new plywood top on the underside of the lid to cover the insulation in the top, and install hinges. Taps and all remaining parts arrive Friday from "learn to brew". Almost done!

Finished all the hard work tonight.

Installed my new plywood top for the lid.

Installed the spray painted factory seal, with the plastic factory clips to the collar.

Installed hinges to the collar and freezer using new bolts to hopefully strengthen it up a bit...seems very solid.

And the lid opens!!

Threw on some foil tape to clean up the edges of the insulation.

And here it sits, waiting for my taps to arrive tomorrow!
