Okay, now I DESPERATELY want one of these. Cheaper than a jockey box, less hassle... only problem are those damned 3 gallon cornies! I think I'll go the five gallon route, and get a little spray paint action to make it look like...



That's right folks. R2-Beer2

I'm thinking about doing that. The larger of my paintball tanks will not fit in the bracket I made with the lid shut.

What was the size and price of that cooler you used?

That looks like an Igloo Marine Ice Cube Ultra Roller. I think they tend to run around $50-$70.

Or you could hack your Igloo MLT so that it subs as a portable kegerator.



With a small corny the 20oz CO2 tank fits inside and the lid goes on.



At first I tried the 16g CO2 cylinders, but in the long run the 20oz paintball cylinder was the way to go.

Attitude, that is awesome! Is that 70 quart cube? Looks like your 3gallon kegs are more side by side..

yea I have ball lock and pinlock 3 gallon cornies. I had to modify the sides ( cut out and remove insulation). I'm looking at fiberglass tomake it water tight again. I also used a fire Extinguisher cradle to mount the tanks.
