Cool find....

Now on to more important things:
Thanks for your dedication and hard work over there. Keep your head together and finish the tour of duty with honor. I appreciate your service.

Should you find yourself in SoCal, let me know, I'll supply the beer for my fellow patriot.

Sweet find, first thing you need to do is get rid of the tap handles.
Stay safe and come back whole, Thank you and best of luck.

when i get back i'll keep this updated and show the progress of it.i think i might slap a coat of paint on it.not sure what color yet.i'm a huge LSU fan and it would go great with the rest of the man cave.so it might be painted purple and gold.

I would make sure it's working well before investing any time into it. They can be costly to repair, mine went into the recyclers after the compressor died. Luckily I was able to salvage a lot of parts from it. Also they are power hungry and loud compared to residential equipment.
Thank you for your service and good luck with the kegerator.
