Ok, I think I've reached one of the final phases for now. I installed a wooden floor so I can store more kegs in there. I don't plan on needing more than 2 taps right now, but I'd like the space to cold crash or carb 1 or 2 stand by kegs.

The floor is not fancy (and not quite straight), but it is level and pretty solid.

One thing I still need to figure out is how to stabilize the CO2 tank. That huge double regulator easily causes the whole CO2 tank to topple over, using landing on the rather expensive regulator.

Thanks for viewing and comments.

Go to Home Depot or Lowes and pick up a short all weather Rubber bungee cord (it's made of all rubber not the standard cloth type bungees). Attach the hook at the end of the bungee to one of the shelf racks (I see that they are still attached to the inside back of the fridge) stretch it across the tank and attach the other end of the bungee to the other rack. Since those racks already have slots where the shelves used to attach too, those hooks can hook into them without having to cut or drill.

That's a great idea, thanks. I might have one of those rubber bungee's around here somewhere.
