I haven't tried but you should be able to get 3 ball locks in there.

very nice!

Then I'll line the interior with a 55 gallon, construction grade plastic bag....maybe two.

Then finally, I'll cut another piece of foam board the shape of the opening and lay it inside to insulate the top...then on goes the lid.

This should keep the interior cold enough that just a 1/3 to 1/2 fill with ice will keep everything cold...including the lines.

This thing will be parked in the shade for an evening event...so it should be pretty efficient.
BM,
I know it's been quite some time but I'm having a rough time finding a valve like this. Do you remember what section in Walmart you found it?

Here's my version. Not quite done, but you get the idea. I plan on just siphoning out water.

Trash can, insulation, oak, and aluminum tape was right around $50 out the door at the depot.

I can't speak for BM, but this should do in a pinch: http://www.amazon.com/Feel-Free-Kaya...ded+drain+plug

I found mine at my LHBS. A quick search of some of my favorite equipment stores gave me THIS ONE.

ODG.... I think I have fallen in lust with this... Sorry but I need to clean up my drool. I do weekend events for a sport called Dagorhir and this would be wicked awesome for the friday and saturday night dinner party.

Caveat: I know this thread has been going on for years. Just wondering if anyone knows where a similar CO2 setup can be had these days?

Just about any place that does CO2 setups has the components you'll need. I'd suggest KegConnection. I got a bunch of stuff through them a while back and its all great. Depending on what you've already got they've got some complete kits with CO2/faucets/etc, otherwise you can pretty easily piece together a regulator, tank, distributor, and hosing for the gas side.
