Default Starting my keezer build... thoughts? Pics added

Hey guys...
I wanted to post my ideas on my keezer build that starts tomorrow.
I am going to use a 5 cubic foot freezer and build a irish coffin on top. The top will be tiled with multi-colored blue 1" glass tile and a stainless drip tray. The inset of the coffin under the taps will have a 10" digital picture frame rolling thru the beers on tap as well as pictures of the brew day and abv, ibu's etc. Instead of paneling the sides and front with wood, I am going to use corrugated tin used for roofing. I am also going to use some blue led ribbon light underneath the lip of the lid to reflect down the front and side tin. I will have it up on four wheels... I'll use the radio shack project box cooling system for the coffin to keep the taps cold. Any thoughts, suggestions or anything that I am missing? I have been running the keezer for about a year now and opening the top to get a cold one... I think I will like having a setup like this.

I think your digital picture frame idea is great...but I think I need to see the tin sides before having an opinion on that part of your build.

Led ribbon. Way better than rope light. Bends and the lights are much closer together.

And the juice to power them:

looks pretty good thus far, I will have some sanding to do... tile the top, add/build the coffin, stain it, put in the digital frame and add the led ribbon. its coming along.
