    Nice work. Just wondering why you didnt clean up the keg? Is the idea to look used?

    Cool

    This is just a thought from my buddy an Ohio State Highway Patrolman. He said the first thing they would do when a guy comes in with a beer keg like on a dune buggy to get inspected is make him "prove" he owns the keg or he has to remove it. Just my .02 ...Bob

    Yes, the idea was to keep it looking like a used keg. I've personnaly never seen one that wasn't scratched and dented a bit. A friend wanted me to polish it and remove the paint, but I figured it wouldn't look right.

    Kegs can be bought remanufactured for around $80 bucks, and are around $150 new, or at least they used to be before the price of stainless went up. I suppose if I was told I couldn't have this one then it could be turned in for 50 cents per pound. This particular one was de-comissioned for some reason so I was told, and had been in private posession for 24 years.

    It holds a half gallon less than the origonal fuel tank. I tinkered with a sending unit from a CAT 777 haul truck that fits into the neck of the keg, I just have to buy a couple parts and I'll have it hooked up to the stock fuel guage.

    Thanks Bert for the comments
