Sweeeet!

That kinda makes my cube cooler portable look plain.

May need to work on that.

That is too cool. I'm going to have to steal your idea and make an R2erator.

What is that black adapter between the regulator and CO2 bottle?

Never mind, a little search on kegconnection, and I found it. Nice that it comes as a kit.

you might want to look into installing a drain so you dont have to dump it over when the ice melts.

Once it's together and painted I'll be installing a drain.

Fiberglass work commenced. Man I forgot how annoying fiberglass mat is. It's much more unruly than the cloth.



I'm no autobody man, but that should sure hold water.



I also painted the underside of the lid with fiberglass resin to seal it against water.



Next step: 'glass the head and shoulder areas.

Not to burst your bubble, or anything, but I've seen someone build a benderator already. Well, not a beer server, but a fermentation chamber IIRC. And "had" plans to build an R2 unit as well, but after researching the thing I decided it was just too much for me to do. I'd love to see one done though.

Maybe someday when I get the mustang on the road I'll tackle one of these massive projects.

No bubble to burst: I never claimed to be the first person to build a life-sized Bender. I actually used some of his dimensions to help with my proportions. There's also someone who build a Bender as a PC case.

But I haven't found anyone actually dispensing beer from their Bender. His is just a holder for a plastic fermentation tank. So I win!
