Default Hardware for keggle and Cooler MLT

So I have been searching for awhile now on just a parts list I could take to Lowes, Home Depot, etc. and get the parts I need for my 2 kegs, and cooler. I currently have 3-1/2" Brass Ball Valves.

I know I need a few more parts to make it work for all 3 vessels, any one have any links?

Depends on how advanced/far you want to go. Sight glasses, thermometers, dip tubes, the options are endless.

Bargainfittings.com is highly regarded for all your keggle/mlt/etc fittings. I have ordered multiple times from them, I don't know how they do it but my items were at my door like 2 days after I ordered, even if it nighttime when I ordered.

+1 more for baragain fittings. I looked at buying the parts to build what this guy does and i couldnt do it cheaper. Only 5$ shipping and great products.
