Default 5 Tap All White Keezer Build

So I got the 7.2cf GE freezer from home depot and I just got it mostly put together. I have to add a few more beer lines and she'll be all done. Everything is pretty much the same as everyone else's so I think I will just talk about the little tweeks I made. Anybody has any questions, feel free to ask.

Here's what it looks like on the outside :

My keezer is going in the garage so I didn't feel the need to make it all fancy and stuff, I just wanted it all white so it wouldn't look too bad.

First off I decided that I wanted to insulate the collar but didn't want to see the insulation. So I have a 1x12 with a 1/2" thick piece of blue insulation board which will we covered up on the inside by an 1/8" thick piece of birch plywood on the inside. On the top and bottom edges I have a small strip of poplar so the edges would look nice and provide a good seal.

I forgot to mention I put aluminum foil in the middle as well to help with the r-value based on a recommendation from someone on here. Also before I put the inside skin on, I added some blocking to add extra support for gauges I would be mounting on the inside.

I put one on the hump. That's why I went with a 1x12 collar.

I found i could only fit 5 kegs in my freezer so i needed 5 holes. I also bought a digital temp gauge to mount on the front along with a towel bar (thanks to great ideas i got here!) So here is the collar all drilled out.

First coat of white appliance paint after one coat of primer (overall about 3 or 4 coats of paint).

I put one of my hump as well. Are the other four tight in the bottom?

I have ball lock kegs and it was a tight squeeze but 4 fit without major pushing.

Just hooked up the first 3 kegs plus 1 sparkling water keg as a piece offer for the wife.

So I have 3 single gauges coming off my tank. The reg on the tank I set at 30psi. The first 2 gauges are also set at 30psi. I have the first 2 at this pressure because I have had great success with quasi-force kegging at 30psi for 2 days then down to 10psi to finish it out and for serving. The last gauge is hooked to a 4 port manifold so I can have multiple kegs at serving pressure.

Here's the final product (minus one keg...but don't worry, got 1 aging and 2 batches fermenting):
