Default Finally finished my 4 tap kegerator!

I bought this old refrigerator on craigslist a few months ago and it was white, and filthy!

I cleaned it all up finally, and used 2 cans of Black Appliance paint to get it looking like new again, then added 4 Perlicks to the front, and now finally have my own kegerator.



I also built this 4 way distributor for about $12 from HD.



Nothing too groundbreaking, I've just been waiting for the day I could make this post for a long time!

Good work! How did you build the distributor? I want to do the same thing.

Can you open the freezer without opening the fridge or is it a bad camera angle? looks awesome!

The tap shanks appear to extend out too far. Is there a reason for that? Maybe it's an illusion or the camera angle. I was also wondering if the freezer door would clear the tap handles when you open it.

Now all you need is a drip tray and you'll be rockin'.

Disregard the comment about the taps extending out too far. I see it's an illusion due to the reflection on the shiny black paint. Duh.

Really nice, I'm still the boring white.
Do you have a parts list for that 4 way distributor. I think that is very nice and I liked the price tag.

No I can't. But this was intentional. I know I will be switching to long tap handles eventually, and to put the faucets low enough so that the freezer could clear the long tap handles made me bend down so low it was completely uncomfortable.

The fridge door is reversible, so a piece of all-thread with two nuts can connect the fridge door to the freezer door so that the two doors always open at the same time.

It is either that or just don't open the freezer. I don't keep anything in there anyways.
