Default Maybe someday she'll be here(weldless brutus 10)

For about 6months now I've been looking around matching prices and finding as much free stuff as possible to start me a Brutus. Well she's not together yet, but I wanted to share so far what I have. I know I came in under a grand. When I sit down and add up all the receipts I'll post them on here , and try as well to take pics of the build if wanted. My goal was to build her on a budget and I think I didn't do to bad. I still need to get gas plumbing, but will wait to build the fame first. Then go buy alot of random sizes to get it plumbed. And before u ask the two yellow ball valves up front are just mockups. I will make the tubing longer when I get these pilots plumbed. The 2nd pic is of one of the kegs(I have 2 more to do) and the last pic is the angle iron and Cloey. Any thoughts?

Interested to see this one come along. I am in much the same place...a bunch of parts all over the garage. I am getting a journeyman sheet metal worker buddy of mine to help me weld up a frame...hopefully this weekend!

I started my controller build yesterday. I was going to do a mounted panel,but in looking around decided to go with one of those cool tool box builds. I like the idea that all the electric besides the valves will b protected. So to lowes I went. Not to bad for under fifty I got the boxes, the outlets, a spa gfci and the tool box. Yes I know the wiring doesn't look right, but it is. I am cheap and didn't want to buy wire, so I cut up a extension cord and used what wires I had. So everything is not colored to what it should be. As well i still need to wire in on and off switch and lights. If anyone has an idea to improved anything let me know. Thanks to all at hbt who's ideas I am using to make my build possible
