Default Draft Beverage System

I was trying to hold out on posting until this project was completely finished but I am not sure when that will happen right now. So.. here's what I have so far:
https://picasaweb.google.com/1059590...everageSystem#

New Frigidaire 7.2 Freezer (won a 100 gift card that covered half of that)
Ebay temperature controller
2 Perlick 525PC (when I have more expendable income, I'll add 2 525SS to compare longevity)
7lb CO2 tank (I love the size of this thing)
Dual Regulator
2 ball lock corny kegs and connectors(thank you High Gravity!)
Sanke coupler
3mm LEDs from Radio Shack. Much cheaper and better looking than the under cabinet kits they sell at the home stores.

I have right at $450 invested in the total project at this point.
My wife and I bought this house a few months ago and there was no kitchen. The previous owners took it with them. After spending so much money putting in a pretty new kitchen, SWMBO wasn't about to let me "ugly" the place up with a standalone keezer so I tried to integrate the thing as much as possible. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and I just wanted to share it here since this is where I got most of my beer education. Thanks HBT!

Only problem I see. Is most fire coeds require a certain burn rating between garage and living spaces. Removing the one layer of sheetrock and insulation.

Well done sir. Very professional & finished looking.

PS - love the 4Runner in the garage with Dueler tires. (I have a 4Runner w/Dueler tires)
