Just saw a pic of this kegerator on Facebook. Very cool! Great job on the reconstruction and conversion. That's a big project.

Schmidty, the kegerator looks incredible! Did you ever finalize a drip tray and if so any chance you could post a pic or two? I haven't seen many drip trays that would look good on a vintage fridge so would be interested to see what you came up with.

This is absolutely amazing! It's like a '57 Chevy with a perfect paint job. Oozes style and class from top to bottom, and those taps and handles are so perfect!

Thanks, guys; I've really enjoyed it! Yes, fosaisu, I did come up with a drip tray; the initial fridge project was done in a rush before things got busy, and things have been busy since. I was just thinking about how I need to get those pics posted the other day. I will do so shortly with details. In the meantime, here's one I just snapped the other day with the drip tray attached. It's a little hard to tell, but I curved it to kind of mimic the bottom chrome apron. More to come!

Very nice looking and great attention to detail!

I have a newish full size fridge in the garage and I couldn't bring myself to putting wholes in it as I think I wouldn't be happy with it. Instead I picked up a chest freezer and made a keezer out of it for the basement. I think something like this would be a nice addition to the garage.

Cheers,

I'm really curious to know where you got that! I've been looking and HOPING I wouldn't have to fabricate one for mine.

One more question, what length shanks did you use? Obviously this will vary fridge-to-fridge but just trying to get a sense of what you used there. I'm working on a '49 Crosley Shelvador and hoping I can get away with 4" stainless shanks (they're less than half the price of 6"s at ritebrew.com, and although I know people often recommend using the longest available shanks to keep the taps cool, space will be at a premium since I'm hoping to mount my taps higher on the fridge and therefore have to worry about running into the freezer compartment door if the shanks are too long).
