So after a few weeks of pinching my pennies I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the 3 faucets and shanks to finish up my kegerator.

I posted a while back about what I had so far: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-t...erator-201672/

But here she is now! Next Sunday she'll be serving 3 kegs.

The workings:



I have some rope lights I think I will figure out a way to use them for now they are just wrapped around it:

Trashy but classy. (sorry I couldn't resist)

I agree on the drip tray. Very nice!

How did you do the drip tray>? Looks like a vent register of some sort, what did you use for the containment below? Im in the process of making a trash can erator for a few summer parties this year.

Drip tray was a vent register and a mud tray for drywall.

Rope light plugged into the wall.
