I'll have to wait until I get my elements before I put a hole in the keg. I got my heat sinks mounted along with my element receptacles and pump receptacles. I have pictures but am at work and will have to wait until I get home to post them. I think I have spent 8 to 10 hours measuring, drilling, cutting, reaming, punching and filing holes for this thing. The worst part is I spent all that time measuring it over and over to get it perfect but the drill bit would wander a little and throw everything off.

Here are the pictures of the heat sinks and receptacles. I left the bottom pump receptacle out because of the way I put them the hot screw will be too low to attach a wire with it in place.

What size of screws did you use to mount your heat sink, having issues with this. I got a ton done today check out my thread. Hope all is well. Will try to finish up the last three holes for panel and paint tomorrow.

I have almost all my wiring done. What size wire should I use from the switches for the elements to the coil on the contactors? I have 14 gauge going to the switches protected by a 1 amp fuse. I assume 14 gauge to the coil should be ok right?
