Quaffer, (& others)
I see you have the Bar Producs 19" drip tray sitting on corner brackets.
Is it just sitting there with gravity holding it in place?
If so, have you ever knoched it off??

It is attached to the brackets with the same tape that is holding the brackets to the freezer.

How do you remove it for cleaning (running it thru the dishwasher)?

I don't remove it. After each keg is empty I clean that faucet. I use some of the line cleaning fluid that went through the faucet to fill the tray and let it soak for a while. Meanwhile I can clean the grating in the sink. Then I use a sponge to get the cleaner out and rinse with water.

Bought 5" brackets and bent them up to retain. Fits in dishwasher nicely!!!

Thanks to Quaffer and everyone else in this thread for the info and ideas. I'll add more taps in the future, but I'm a happy man for now

Some awesome builds here... anyone know if the 7.2 Frigidaire fit 3 pin-locks and a 10# tank on the bottom (no collar)? They're on sale at Best Buy and I have some gift cards so I'd like to use this freezer for 2 taps on a tower/coffin + one carbing and add a counter top to the lid as a kitchen island. I'm hoping to keep the hump free for a small (4 gallon) carboy lagering or some extra bottles.

Thanks!

I've got pin locks. Oddly, kegconnection sent me 2 short and stubby kegs, and my LHBS had tall thinner ones. If you've got the shorter ones, I don't think you'd be able to fit what you want on the bottom.
Skinny and tall, I cant say for sure.
