Well here is my keezer project. I am waiting for my faucets to arrive. They were originally supposed to arrive tomorrow, but the Fedex tracking now says today.

Here is the freezer...
My plan is to replace the top with a new and improved top, equipped with four faucets.

Here is the new top.
Made with 5/8" particle board. This shape allows me to store a corny on the compression hump inside the freezer..

Here it is with the faucets. Now I can fit a corny on the hump, increasing the capacity from 3 to 4.

Here are some photos of how the top is attached. Using stainless steel 1/4-20 bolts, I simply used the existing hinge that was attached to the previous lid. The chain is there to keep the new lid from 'over-opening'I made a hole next to the hinge for the temperature controller's thermometer, then filled it with plumbers putty. That way the lid seal remains in tact.

Just a quick FYI.
The 'Great Stuff' is a good insulator and it fills in the area quite well. However, it has been off-gassing a chemical odor. It has been dissipating a little, but its still there. Next time I'd try to find a lower odor spray foam.
