Ben,

One of the fridges that I helped with we instaled 2 3inch shanks through the top of the door and didnt even need a tower. I dont know how it would look if you did only one in the door with the one on the tower...but it would work. You can also add on to your tower, just lower and to the side.

As you can see I just BARELY fit 2 kegs in there. I don't have the money for a dual tower right now, but I will be adding a second Co2 line with shut off and a "T" in the beverage line with 2 shut offs so I can switch kegs easily.
Just curious, did your fridge have the little freezer section in the top? If so, how did you move it?

Yes, it did and it took up the whole width of the fridge. It was mounted to the top, so I just took the screws out and took off the thermostat. It was a U shape but had 2 pieces that came across the top, so I cut those off with a tin snips. Then I just bent it down til it hit the back wall.

Here you can see it a little better.

Just finished up my kegerator. The second keg is something I'll be getting relatively soon.



Closeup of the logo on the front:



It's just vinyl lettering, got it done at Fastsigns.

Interior (note Han Solo in carbonite on keg (and ignore MHL):



Here's a closeup of my fan box. I'm pretty proud of it, came out really clean looking:



Kind of hard to see with so much black in there. It's a project box with a 115v 3" Axial fan mounted in it. I got a threaded nipple and attached it to the side with some nuts, and hose clamped some bilge pump hosing on to that. The box is velcro'ed to the bottom of that hump up there, and I wire-tied a thermometer lead on my dual temp thermometer to the hose, so I have interior box and tower temperatures at a glance.

After a long time of nickel and diming I finally have a pic to post. Still doing so work on the guts (tower cooler, chasing a co2 leak) but I'm happy with how it turned out.



Thanks to hollsa for the taps

The reason I ask is because I am building a collar-less system and if you were able to mount that regulator on the inside surface of your freezer I would REALLY like to know how you were able to do it. Nothing adheres to polypropelene with the ability to bear any weight load so I'm stuck
Based on the height of the cornies, I'd say "no". He seems to have a mounting block behind the regs if you look closely; likely glued to the surface.
