Default Red Bull Barrel Cooler Kegerator

Here is my Red Bull Kegerator...

It fits one 5 gallon with a low profile tapping device without having to modify the cooler. Made the lid out of 1/4" aluminum and used a new micromatic tower.
Also used quick disconnect used for air tools to attach the air to the lid and can unhook my CO2 and attach it to my jockey box. So I can remove the custom lid with tower and all the hoses are attached and I can put the old lid in for use as a bottle or can cooler on the back deck during summer bbq's. Overall I am pleases although I need to find a drain that I can pick up and pour out. Anyone with links or ideas please post em...
Thanks,

This is excellent! I love the quick disconnect. Very clean.

Would you be so kind as to show us the inside?

I still need to find a weather stripping to go around the lid to help seal the cold air in but I figured it was complete enough to post.

Ah, it's a sanke keg. Do you put homebrew in there or strictly commercial?

I do put homebrew in there. I work in the beer business as a draught tech so all the parts for sanke are accessible to me. I know it's a pain to dissassemble the keg but it's what's available to me. Any other questions let me know...
