Got free from a friend. Modified the temp controller using the course adjustment screw, removed the top, painted it black, added a base and added my own top with a collar.

How important is it that you use the thick red tube for the gas lines? Also does it help to have the tank of CO2 inside the fridge?

Line is for insulation and ease of recognition (also in blue) As for tank in or out it's a matter of preference. I found that the gauges on the regulators rust as do the steel tanks. I have my tanks and regulators mounted outside, for adjustment and change outs without having to open the lid. Inside also takes up cold space better suited for beer

I use 3/16" ID lines with 1/4" barbs for all beer and gas. Keeps things simple and will never leak.

Well I finally finished my Keezer and it was quite the fun project. In my mind this was a prototyping R&D endeavor. Everything I used was as bare bones and as dirt cheap as I could find, I even built and stained my own tap handles to match it. I spent well over a month gathering the parts. I am a very patient person. It holds 3 corneys, a 10lb CO2 bottle and a 20CF Nitrogen Bottle. I'm pretty sure I could get 2 cornys, the CO2 bottle and a 1/4 slim barrel if I wanted to (Wife likes Mich Golden Light). Eventually I will step up into the big leagues and get something larger that can hold more.

Here is my parts list with prices
-Haier 5.0cf Chest Freezer - $30 Craigslist
-10lb CO2 bottle - $20 FULL Craigslist
-CO2 Regulator - $25 Ebay
-20CF Nitrogen Bottle w/ regulator - $50 Craigslist
-Perlick SS Faucet - $30 Ebay
-Micromatic SS Faucet - ?? Had it for a while, lets say $30
-Stout Faucet - $45 Ebay
-Towel Bar - $8 Menards (I think it is technically a cabinet handle)
-Towel - $3 Target
-Liquid Side x3...SS Shanks/washers/tailpieces/wingnuts/Bevseal Hose/barbed swivel nuts/disconnects - $120 Farmhouse Brew Supply
-Gas Side x3...Disconnects/Barbs/Fittings - $30 Farmhouse/Ace Hardware
-Temp Controller $20 Ebay
-Misc Pine lumber, 1/2"Foamboard, WeatherSeal Foam, 5"x5" Brackets, Velcro - $35 Menards
-Prestain, Stain, Lacquer, Rustoleum Black Hammered Spraypaint - $30 Menards
-5"x12"x0.75" SS Drip Tray - $20 Ebay
-Computer Fan+Cell phone charger - ?? Had them sitting around

Total cost ~ $500

Most of the expensive stuff will transfer over to the next one I build.

On tap at the moment is Guinness of course (clone) and an Oatmeal Stout. I need to get my hands on a few more corny kegs so I can get a rolling lineup going.
