I picked this unit up a couple of months ago. It's an embossed 7up Ideal 55 slider. My first surprise was someone had placed an enamel 7up sign over the original embossed logo. I repainted the entire unit in pearl white, with torch red and gloss black. The rack has been powder coated and I also redid the compressor. Just waiting on the new lid form Soda Jerks and for the paint to dry on the cap catcher! More to follow!

Just had the system charged and placed the new lid on! Got a little work to do on the coin opt, but it's ready for beer:-)
