I'm not entirely sure, but I'll check and update this post. For now here is a picture to give an idea of scale with a 5# CO2 cylinder and two ball lock cornies.

If I were to hazard a guess from that picture, at first blush, looks like 7-8 cornies plus a 5 pound tank would fit.

A long overdue update.

3-5) Framing in around the compressor.

1&2) More compressor framing.
3) Noticed the foam for the horizontal support.

1&2) Test fitting the the compressor framing. The heat exchange coil is tied for the test fit.
3) A messy job with "great stuff" sealing the gaps. I used the window and door kind, as it says flexible and wouldn't push the panels off square.
4) The heat exchange coil is now tacked on with chicken coop nails.
5) A close up view of the chicken coop nail around the heat exchange coil.

I did a preliminary test for one hour using a digital thermometer placed on the compressor box. Although some small gaps were not sealed yet, I was able to drop the internal temperature from 64°F to 41°F. That is 23°F over one hour or a drop of 0.38°F/min.!
