I didn't do the best job chronicling my efforts, however, I took some picture that someone else could follow. Thanks for all the help that others have provided their own workmanship and lessons learned.
This is a Frigidaire 7.2 Cu Ft. I picked up from Best Buy.
I'll be using an analog johnson control for the temperature which worked great 2 weeks ago.
I went to home depot and picked up 1x8's for the collar which will allow two cornies to fit on the shelf. This keezer is capable of holding 5 cornies if you want. I plan on keeping the CO2 tank outside the keezer, mounted on the side as soon as I figure out how I want to do that.
I found it was easy to remove the previous rubber gasket and then I secured it to the collar. The extra weight of the collar helps create a good seal.
I couldn't decide how I wanted to paint the keezer and decided to just use what I had on hand and that was some aluminum flashing! I will say this stuff isn't the easiest to use especially to make the corners and can easily dent. The pictures don't show the little dings here and there, but in my opinion it looks good and works.
Here is the lid attached to the collar. I wanted the collar to be attached to the hinges and used some screws from a tv mount kit that fit and had a square like nut to secure it to the hinges. It is very sturdy and very happy about it.
Close up of the lid attachment. The brackets surprisingly hold well even being only screwed into the flimsy plastic lid. Before I called it a night I took silicone caulk over all the edges to further help hold together and to seal up any holes coming in.

Aluminum flashing collar!
Start of the tower:
I haven't decided yet how high the taps should be. I think I will position them around 10" above base of the fridge. What is the standard here? For the tower I plan to do cooling passively and I bought some soft copper tubing to fit the beer line and will run that up almost all the way to the shanks, and fill in the remaining space with spray foam. I plan on 4 taps. More pics to come!
