Might add some metal cornering and a gloss finish, but here you go

Digging the game/comic theme. I'm guessing by the name, you lead adventurers to untimely deaths once in a while? What do you have on tap?

Thanks! I'm a huge Batman fan and I got lucky with finding a perfect sized decal for the top. I do love me some Legend of Zelda too though obviously.

On tap right now I got a black IPA right now, a brown porter, Irish Red, and egg nog ale that didn't quite come out how I wanted but still is good. I was dumb and used too much water and it only ended up being like 1.07 OG instead if the 1.10 I wanted. Next time though....

What did you use to attach your drip trays to the freezer? I was thinking self tapping screws 3/4" but didnt want to screw anything up.

I glued some elbow brackets to the the front and put some velcro on the side so its attached to the kegerator. Keeps them in place but you can take them off to clean if you want to. I haven't tested the weight limit extensively, but it can support a full pint I know.

You can find this conversion elsewhere, but I did it differently because of the under counter application. I think this technique might be helpful to others in the same boat. What you are seeing is a loop of 1/2" copper pipe fed up thru the fridge into the counter top and into the tower. The tap line comes thru a T fitting in the copper pipe. The copper gets cold in the fridge and cools the tower, which comes insulated. It works very well (thanks to my brother for the idea). The advantages are:

1) you only have to drill a 5/8" hole in the fridge and countertop.
2) I think it's easier to line that up with the countertop than a piece of conduit.

I lined everything up by first making the cooling pipe, then marking where the T is in the fridge. Then I simply drilled up from inside the fridge. When I hit the underside of the countertop I removed the fridge before going the rest of the way thru the countertop.

This Danby will actually hold two corny kegs with a CO2 tank in the back on the shelf, but in that case you need to take off the door panel and replace it with flat plexiglass or something because as those pop bottle holder projections poke too far into the fridge to allow the second keg. But if you're happy with just a single keg you only need to remove the racks, and then put your CO2 tank on the right hand side. The door panel projections won't bother that. That's what I do for now. Maybe someday I'll add a second keg.

Actually, I have this fridge with two kegs in it. All you need to do is cut this shelves off the door. I used a reciprocating saw. They are plastic and filled with insulating foam. It's pretty easy. That gives you the room you need in the fridge.

I installed mine under the counter too. Remember this thing vents out the back. I put a floor register in the counter to allow heat to escape. Make sure it's vented, or the fridge won't last long.
