Sharing a few pics of my recent (almost completed - minus drip tray) Blue Light Special keezer build. Once I started the project I was on a mission to keep cost as low as possible while making it presentable. I recycled many of the parts involved in the build including the lumber for the collar and base, most nuts and bolts, roller wheels, power supply, electrical cords and connection and even the metal trim is used metal yard edging that once separating rock from grass in the yard. As of now I have approx $420 out of pocket on this project (minus drip tray, kegs and CO2 bottle, taxes) Point is you dont have to spend a bunch of $ to build a basic keezer.
I have seen many nice keezer builds over the past years and thought someday I might build a keezer but was in no hurry to get into another project, until I was in Wally Mart and came across a GE 7CF freezer for $119. This was cheaper than the mini fridge I had looked at before that would barely hold 2 corney kegs. So it was a no brainer, game on .
