The brown truck brought my shanks and drip tray yesterday so I ran the beer lines.

Shank holes in the backsplash and duct:



Here's the insulated duct inside the coffin. For those wondering, that's R3. We'll see how it goes, I may double it up as I had extra.



The view inside the coffin looking up at the shanks entering the duct.



Beer lines ran, along with the gas lines complete.



And they're in!



Next up, my buddy is doing the tile tonight while I wire in the Love controller and install a compressor vent.

You are moving right along. Looks great -- can't wait to see the finished product.

I used them, it works. I think I used a single 60lb one from McMaster-Carr with a similar setup as shown. Have since redid mine, so don't have it anymore.

So on this are the shanks just slid into holes in the pvc or are they secured somehow?

Not secured, though they fit pretty snug. The duct is easily removable. To do so I just back-off the shank nuts nearly all the way and push the shanks forward (extending them out of the coffin) which allows them to "leave" the duct. Then the duct can be lifted out of the female bases and laid down. All the while the beer lines are sliding out the holes (still attached to the shanks) allowing me to change a line, etc.

Beautiful build! At first I thought the caps looked cool but excellent choice going with the tile. Very impressive!

The keezer has found its final resting place in my bar next to the pool table.



The love controller is in, and the wiring complete.



The tile is in:



I ended up putting a register vent on the compressor door. That thing gives more venting that the original louver cover that was there:



I added two kegs of Alt which is still conditioning. Picking up the half-barrel of Sierra Celebration later today. I can't want to pour the first pint off the keezer!



Now I need to get brewing and fill this thing up!

Very freeking nice. How heavy is the lid? You use a stick or something to hold it up?
