Nice build.

Sometimes I am not so handy - instead of building a frame with wheels, I would have cheated by strapping it to a handcart from Harbor Freight.

You can now find spray paints specifically for plastics in most hardware stores; Rustoleum has a good line. I was successful with regular Rustoleum on polycarbonate. I roughed it with 220 grit then blasted it with rattle-can primer, a color coat, and a clear gloss topcoat. The clear topcoat really made a difference. Plan on touching it up when, not if, you scratch it with BBQ tools and such. Or leave it white PVC - no biggie.

I would rather have good home brew from a PVC tap than AB Inbev from a gold spigot.

I got it off Amazon. If anyone is interested here are all of the components you'll need to get these things running of battery power. They come rigged for A/C but they run off of 12 V. I figured the scooter battery will run them for about 4-5 hours.

LED's - $23.95 free shipping

DC Plug - $4.14 free shipping

Cigarette lighter adapter

For the Battery Just google shop 12V battery and get the highest amps at the lowest price you can find
Battery (higher amps the longer it will run)

Need to animate the lights to a soundtrack of "drinking" songs like: "Have a Drink On Me", and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer", etc.

You could be the next you tube sensation with the right light show!

A 12V battery like that would probably run those lights for a few weeks! LED's are VERY low draw. Only bummer is you have to keep charging the battery up, plus it's just one more thing to have to lug around. Personally I'd see about rigging up an 8-cell battery holder - something that can hold 8 AA batteries. They'd still power the lights for several hours (8 x 1.5 = 12V) and you could hide it under the lid or something.

Just my thought.

The actually say they draw 4 amps. I thought that was high since they are LED however i guess it can be accounted for since there are hundreds of them on the strip. Way more than needed to illuminate the barrel. The battery is still pretty small and will fit inside under the cover, and I love that i can just recharge it using any 12 v car battery recharger.
My scooter battery is 16 AH. My understanding is that this represents 16 amp/hour. Therefore it can sustain something drawing 4 amps for 4 hours. ( 16ah / 4amp draw )= 4 hours. One AA produces less than an amp each so I think 8 of them might run the thing for like 5 hours is my guess. So it probably a matter of how often you would use thing to determine if regular battries versus a bigger battery is more cost effecient and convenient.
