    Anyone know what happened to my images on original post? I guess I didn't upload them the proper way and would have been better using links to the images. Anyone know how to fix?
    Was about to add an update image as have just added a shelf with the drip tray, but will wait until I know the correct way to add the image.

    I have checked the post and there is nothing there so no way for me to fix the problem, if you can use the postimage method in the thread below and paste the missing pics from the first post in the reply to this i will post them in the first post in the thread as you will have run out of time to edit them yourself.

    Sorry, busy weekend. Have just posted images to thread that you requested. I could not remember the exact images I went for before so hope not an issue! Thanks

    Update, I added a drip tray.
    Built a simple shelf, with some earth magnets attached to back. This held in place quite securely but would slide about, so I thought it's not going to be coming off for any reason, I'll stick the magnets in place with super glue. Tadaa! Maybe not the best engineering mind but I avoided having to make any holes in the freezer.

    Did you add wheels yourself?

    Yeah, but they are just appliance runners from Screwfix so pretty straightforward.

    I asked some advice on building a platform and then fixing casters to it, after which I was told "why don't you just by appliance rollers". So I did. I think it's probably saved on height as well vs the caster method

    That's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

    I'm looking into buying some kegs and making a kegerator or keezer at the moment. I wish I had the skill do do what you have done there!!!

    Loving your work. Hoping to finally get mine sorted out soon though in a tall larder fridge rather than a chest freezer. No plans for anything decorative as it lives in the garage but might do something with it one day!

    That’s a beauty! I also like the idea of the magnetic removable drip tray. Initially I had mine screwed on and dealt with cleaning it by just removing the grate. But I tended to be lax on cleaning it, and in short order it became a breeding ground for multi-colored molds. So I took it off altogether and replaced it with a decorative washable rug on the floor to catch drips. Every week or two it is tossed into the washer.

    An idea to hide your white lid seal...

    What about the rubber/sponge bead used as door draught excluder? Stick a ring of it to the lid and a ring to the collar, just in front of the white seal. If you get the right size the two strips should compress against each other and hide the real white seal behind. I know you can get the strip in dark brown, maybe other colours too.

    Great work by the way!

    Yeah, no probs. They are the Intertap flow control faucets. I got them from Malt Miller but I think there are a few stockists in the UK.

    Thanks. It honestly doesn't take that much skill. Youtube and forums like this are your best friends, and patience of course!

    Thanks, that is a great idea. I did think of something along those lines but only having the seal on one surface. Both might just work!

    I know that feeling! I have 3 beers in fermenters at the moment but they're not ready to keg yet so I just have carbonated sanitizer in the lines
