Hey Ray
Great build! I've been following your progress and am impressed with the end product. Do you have beer on all four taps?

I didn't see any electrical wires that went to the lid of the freezer. The "donor" freezer I'm looking at has wiring to the lid for the light. Just wondering if I should splice in an extension or cap it off and not have a light.

Hope you're enjoying!

Thanks ibru for the compliment, especially with me being a new guy here.

As far as the light in concerned it can not hurt to have one. I opted not to buy a freezer with one for a couple of reasons. 1- I got this freezer new at a excellent price from lowes. 2- its in my pub room with plenty of light already and I can see just fine without one. So keep it if youd like, it wont hurt anything. Look forward to seeing your build.

My Keezer will be this way for the next few months, I do plan on skinning it to make it look a bit more fancy later on.

Not to be nosy, but what was the old hobby you're walking away from? 

Ive been keeping Saltwater Reef Aquariums for the last 7 years, and decided it was time to take a break. Its a very time and financial consuming hobby.

I have kept an 80 Gallon and 120 Gallon Saltwater Reef Tank in the recent past, I feel you there. 
Currently selling my aquarium equipment, just to much going on to be focusing time, money, and energy into aquariums.
Putting some of that money towards brewing equipment.
We entertain a lot, so brewing beer will be a fun hobby everyone can enjoy.

yea, I just sold my last aquarium a few weeks ago. The 1st time ive been absolutely 100% without one in years. Have to tell you im loving have the time to focus on my other hobbies.

Havnt updated on here in a while because my newest car/toy/hobby is keeping me busy. I bought a 1964 Econoline Van, and man is it fun. Still brewing though, getting back into the swing of things this weekend when I go shopping at Austin Home Brew Supply :) So look for future updates on my brew setup.

Nope, got back from Vacation a couple of weeks ago and have been working on my 1964 van. Still trying to figure out how I want to skin it. I know some guys that work a lot with vinyl and it can look pretty cool. May go that route.
